Rachel was born in Shropshire and now lives and works in Hampshire. Initially, she studied at Portsmouth Art College and has since been on a long varied journey with her work, including working in a drawing office for seven years, before finally working full time on her Art work. Rachel produces paintings on varying mediums, including board, canvas, wood, silk and ceramics. She also works in graphics and has produced posters, wedding invitations, cards, a mosaic floor for a film set and book covers. Rachel sees pattern everywhere and in her intimate paintings and drawings explores the flow of pattern as it weaves through every part of our lives, both in the natural and created worlds. Her most recent work follows this theme and uses ink and pen on tiny creative boards. She has had successful exhibitions in London, (Bloomsbury), Bath and Guildford as well as local venues in Portsmouth, Farnham and Petersfield.
