Rachel Hine

Rachel Hine is a Geelong based artist known for weaving intricate tapestries. Expressive portraits layered with textile references allow her to connect historical concepts with contemporary imagery.

“There are so many things I love about tapestry weaving. When you begin, there is nothing but an idea and maybe a drawing, and as you create a warp, and then add the weft, you build the image as well as feel it being made. Tapestry has qualities that can make it completely itself, but can also mimic other mediums like drawing and paint. Its sculptural possibilities are also exciting for me.”

Rachel Hine holds a BA Masters of Fine Arts from Monash University. She has been exhibiting regularly in group and solo exhibitions since the late 1990s. She spent several years immersed in training at the Australian Tapestry Workshop from 2000-2006. She has been shortlisted for the Kate Derum Award for Small Tapestries exhibition since 2013. Rachel is enthusiastic about presenting contemporary tapestry.
