Rachael Sarra is an artist and designer whose work is an extension of her being and experiences. As a contemporary Aboriginal artist from Goreng Goreng Country, Rachael uses art as a powerful tool in storytelling to educate and share Aboriginal culture and it’s evolution. Rachaels work often challenges and explores the themes of societies perception of what Aboriginal art and identity is.
Her style is feminine, fun and engaging but is strongly drawn from her heritage and her role as an Aboriginal woman in a modern world. Rachael is fuelled by passion to continue exploring her Aboriginality through art and design, with each piece strengthening her identity.
Rachael graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Communication Design from the Queensland College of Art in Brisbane.

As well the Ignite the Wonder artwork for Kmart Australia that frames the entry of over 13 stores (and counting) as a symbol of a culturally safe environment.
