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 studied at St. Martin’s College of Art and went on to work as an illustrator. In 2007 she began her personal painting career and now paints from a studio at home in her native Edinburgh. Her paintings have been selected for the major Scottish Open exhibitions, The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition, The Threadneedle Prize and the Lynn Painter-Stainers.
She has her next solo in the gallery in the autumn of 2020.
