Our Tail

Meet the creator of Red Tractor Designs...

Hello, I'm Rachael Flynn - thanks for visiting the Red Tractor Designs website. I live on a cattle and sheep farm in a locality called Piambong, about 25kms north-west of Mudgee NSW, with my husband Mick, and my 2 boys, James and Paddy, in a weatherboard house full of odd socks.

I've always had an interest in art and creating things. Originally I was a Visual Arts teacher, but left teaching in 1998 to spend more time with my little boys. I painted a few farm pics back inthe 90's, and had some images reproduced onto greeting cards for the local markets. Originally known as 'Rachael Flynn Art' I changed my brand to 'Red Tractor Designs' in the year 2001.

Originally, my artwork was depicted scenes of farm life, such as a wheat harvest, shearing, and mustering stock, all painted on board or paper with a fine brush. In recent times, the RTD images are more 'character based', and are created by digital enhancement of original work, which allows me to produce a greater variety of work, and give characters a more 'consistent' look.

From greeting cards, the range has now grown to include notepads, magnets, books, calendars and licensed products such as tea towels and gallery-style stationery. 

I love our beautiful Australian birds, drinking loose leaf tea, dogs, fair weather gardening, cooking, music and random podcasts.
