Rachel grew up on a sheep farm on Exmoor. Her work is immersed in the Somerset landscape.
Trained originally as textile designer, Rachel is acutely aware of form and colour. Her delicate style mirrors the fragile forms of the plants and flowers she draws. The forms are often layered and random as the plants exist themselves in nature. Colour is used sparingly and deliberately giving each work a fragility.
