Jury - 2021 CHESTER COUNTY STUDIO TOUR
Rafferty is consistently inspired by the natural world, be it her small back yard or adventures on mountain tops far away. She creates botanical prints using the cyanotype process. Her exploration of nature is an ever-evolving attempt to dissect what is happening with the changing of the seasons and how they can relate to communication. Rafferty is the founder of Atwater Designs, a cyanotype design studio that produces original cyanotypes, fine art prints, paper goods, textiles and wallpaper. She is a seasoned educator and finds teaching to be integral to her artistic process. Rafferty's work has been shown both nationally and internationally. She lives in the West Chester borough. Her studio is on her 3rd floor.
