Red Tractor design by artist Rachael Flynn. Her fun designs are inspired by the joys of living on the family farm in Mudgee NSW.
Simple scenes such as shearing sheep, harvesting wheat crops or gardening are typical of her work, and can be found on products such as stationery, dinnerware and tea towels. Rachael works under the brand 'red tractor designs'. Her images is instantly recognised, and are part of collections in all regions of Australia. The universal appeal of red tractor designs has taken Rachael's work to many parts of the world including the USA, UK and Asia. She lives in NSW Australia on a sheep and cattle farm with her husband and two sons.
A BRIEF HISTORY The images of red tractor designs depict the simple pleasures of rural life in Australia. Scenes of shearing sheep, a wheat harvest or the iconic shed have been lovingly re-created by artist Rachael Flynn and reproduced onto greeting & gift cards, note pads and magnets, as well as licensed products such as tea towels, tableware and other stationery. After leaving art teaching, Rachael began painting 'red tractor' images in the year 2000. After 14 years, these images are instantly recognisable and give a fresh interpretation of life in the Australian bush. Recently, the RTD farm members met with Rachael and expressed that they would like to play a more active role in her brand, allowing their 'character' to develop, rather than just being 'part of the scenery'. She thought that they might be onto something... Rachael is currently exploring the potential of book publishing. She is also investigating opportunities to extend her “red tractor designs” brand beyond the shores of Australia, with its universal appeal. In fact - the farm animals are currently undergoing their vaccination shots...just incase!
