Industry Ink | Giveaway

Industry Ink is the creative design brand of Dunedin based artist and designer, Rachel Sutton, and we're very excited to introduce you all to her work and offer you the chance to WIN A BEAUTIFUL A3 PRINT.

With a background in graphic design, fine art and product development, Rachel founded Industry Ink in 2014 with the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to fill their spaces with art. Industry Ink offers something for those art lovers who enjoy quality artwork at a more affordable price. She began by selling her prints to design stores throughout New Zealand, and in July this year, she launched her new website and online shop.

Rachel specialises in portrait art and currently has a love of dark inky monochromes. Her current ranges comprise of graphic fine art prints and photographic art prints. Her graphic fine art prints are all created freehand on her computer, and she uses her own photography for her photographic prints. All prints are limited editions, signed and numbered, and are printed on 100% cotton rag fine art paper using archival inks. Rachel believes in quality over quantity. "Keeping the collections small and signing each one adds to the quality of each piece," she says.

Rachel has a love of black and white photography, particularly portraits. "I'm inspired by textures and shadows, and am drawn to eyes and how they capture and evoke emotion", Rachel says. Her love of Scandinavian interiors and minimal colour palettes is evident in her work. Old dark room techniques, like playing with different exposures and solarisation, has also influenced her creations, hence the use of monochrome and inky imperfections in tone. "With a background in graphic design and fine art I try to merge the two disciplines by replicating fine art techniques, like textures and markings, with computer graphic brushes", Rachel explains.

Rachel plans on introducing a range of hand drawn fine art prints to her website in the near future, and expanding her photographic range. She would also love to collaborate with like-minded artists and stock other products to compliment her art prints.

The latest Industry Ink collection is Queens - beautiful portraits featuring native New Zealand birds. We have an A3 print of my favourite, "Tui" to giveaway this week.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNER - Kathryn Downey. Enjoy your beautiful print, Kathryn.
