Rachel studied at St. Martin’s College of Art in the 1980’s and went on to pursue a career as an illustrator. In 2007 she began her personal painting career and now works from a studio at home in her native Edinburgh.
Rachel has enjoyed recognition from peers and public. She has had paintings selected for the major Scottish Open exhibitions, The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition, The Threadneedle Prize and was runner up in the Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize 2012 with Silver Spoons.
Central to Rachel’s work is a core of skilled draughtsmanship, her ability to observe and translate her vision in paint elevates simple day-to-day items to objects of beauty. Her considered placement of spoons, letters, twists of coloured thread and delicate eggs create stillness and engage.
On close examination in each spoon's bowl is cupped a small reflected image of the artist.
Rachel will be exhibiting with Hybrid at Fresh Art Fair 2018 and will have a solo exhibition in the gallery in September 2018.
