Rachel is a North-East based Artist, who lives and works in County Durham. Her work is a direct response to the environment: Lichens, rust, and mosses are just some of nature’s wonders that inspire her thoughts and painting process. The transformation of the organic forms and their metamorphosis is captured by her art, which is built up in layers. The process can take from weeks to years, paintings are matured and re-defined using a variety of media, including dyes, waxes and acrylic and oil paint. She has exhibited throughout the North-East, London and Japan.
In a previous life I was an Advanced Skills Art Teacher and at present I do workshops at various venues, including The Northumberland Studio, next to Wheelbirks, for both Children and Adults.
