Hi, I’m Rachel. I love to paint more than anything. I paint what I see, what grabs me, what triggers a memory, what makes me feel happy.
I specialised in painting at the Cardiff School of Art and Design where I received a 1st class honours. After my degree I returned to Bath where I continued my passion for painting. In 2014 we started a family and I decided to have a break from my work to focus my attention to raising my young children. Towards the end of 2018 I felt I was ready to continue my work as a painter.
I now live and work in the beautiful southwest of the UK where I’m blessed with a thriving artistic community on my doorstep.
I feel art should be accessible to all, not just a select few. this is something that I am passionate about. Art is my passion and I want to share that passion with everyone.
