Rachel was born in Grantham, Lincolnshire but as a child moved often. The longest spent in one county, Oxford, was 8 years, but even then yearly Romany caravan holidays to Wales kept alive her wanderlust. Travelling continued to be a passion throughout her teenage years and beyond. Inspired by empty beaches, the thrill of climbing a new hill or mountain just to catch a glimpse of what’s on the otherside. Rachel enjoyes movement in nature, the changing seasons and light; she is influenced by new sights, sounds, tastes and colours. All of these experiences come alive in her paintings.
Rachel currently enjoys her painting in the lovely small village of Martham, Norfolk.
