At the age of 15 Rachel got the taste for silversmithing when accompanying her Grandpa to an evening class which she continued going to until leaving home to study 3D crafts at Brighton University. After graduating in 1999, Rachel set up a workshop at Cross St. Studios in Hove where she worked for the next 11 years.
Rachel’s work has developed over the years with a strong illustrative theme running through it. Her jewellery has gone from miniature kitchen utensils to the intricate miniature drawings on coins, whilst her drawings of kitchen interiors have moved into printmaking and hand embroidering onto vintage textiles. She is inspired by the simple day to day objects in our homes and likes to bring life back to things that have little purpose in the way we live our lives today.
Rachel currently lives in West Somerset with her husband and two young sons, where she continues to enjoy making and developing her work
