Rachel graduated from Buckinghamshire New University with a Ba (Hons) in Textile Design and Surface Decoration in 1999 and now works as a freelance artist and designer based in ‘The Potteries’, the creative county of North Staffordshire.
She lives and works from an old terraced house without a right angle in sight and it’s this love of history, time-worn surfaces and the consistency of the natural world that surrounds them that inspire and inform her work.
As well as creating original art for galleries across the UK, Rachel is also a licensed artist and her work has been published as prints and greetings cards in the UK, USA, France, Lithuania and Estonia. Clients include Canns Down Press, Collage Greetings, Madison Park Greetings and Design House Greetings.
Being a mixed media artist Rachel works with a number of different mediums, however layering and the inclusion of collage are key elements to her process throughout – evoking a sense of age and depth.
