Rachel’s lifelong passion for nature and art has led her through numerous areas of study. She attended the Psalter Lane Art School in Sheffield, then on to Hornsey College of Art, now Middlesex University, to study scientific illustration, which included zoological and medical illustration.
After a successful career painting in London, Rachel spent some time traveling and living abroad before moving to Norfolk. Rachel’s work explores our ancient connection with the creatures in our landscape. She strives to recreate the emotion and adrenalin of the split-second glimpse of a chance encounter when you see, or think you’ve seen, a wild animal.
Her October 2016 exhibition, Wildling was the culmination of Rachel’s work exploring our ancient connection with the creatures in our landscape. Powerful paintings with recurrent themes such as mother and child and foxes lost in play, in Rachel’s words, question the inner wildness that lurks within all of us. Rachel has also had a book by the same title published of this exhibition.
