Since completing studies in Visual Arts at Tafe in 2010, Rebecca Orchard has been involved in group exhibitions and projects in artist run spaces, galleries and in her previous home in Maylands – a collaboration in 2013, with friend and fellow artist Anna Dunnill, where a new body of work was shown in the domestic environment. Upon graduating, she was selected to exhibit in ‘Hatched: National Graduate Show’ – a national survey of emerging artists at Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts. Last year saw her first solo exhibition at Free Range Gallery, titled Sometimes, it’s second nature. She has experience in self-publishing her work in the form of zines and catalogues. Rebecca also co-runs Pouring Dream – a small music label run from her home in Perth, and is half of the duo Erasers.

"Conversations is a publication that was distributed alongside a gig held in Perth in February 2015. Conversations was focused on celebrating the many incredible talents of women in Perth’s creative community. A diverse lineup was organised to play music on the night including Fur Chick, Laurel Fixation, Hayley Beth, Erasers, Felicity Groom and Mei Saraswati, with DJ Nina Bower-Crooke. A similarly diverse set of female visual artists were asked to contribute work to be published in a zine-style format to be given upon entry to the gig. Artists include Luisa Hansal, Gemma Weston, Melissa McGrath, Danni McGrath, Anna Dunnill, Loren Kronemyer and cover art by myself. Conversations is a celebration of women in Perth, with half of the funds raised donated to Starick House helping women in need." - Rebecca Orchard August, 2015
