Since graduating from Chelsea School of Art in 1991, Rachel has exhibited extensively the UK, where her recent London exhibition has been a complete sell-out. Her work is also exhibited and sold internationally. Rachel’s distinct style of work has grown enormously in popularity and she has been published by the Art Group and CCA Galleries who both distribute her work world wide.
Her imagery is derived from a carefully selected narrative, a short story, poem or extract from which she gains inspiration. Her work is not illustrative of that text, but freely interprets it and delights in the re-telling, the sentiment or idea. She explores dimensions, pattern and composition through drawings before presenting her view.
Her ‘women’ are self assured and provocative and often convey an inner strength suggested within the text. Naturally, through her inspiration, her paintings have a sense of narrative within them and are thoughtful or seductive, with quiet dignity and a timeless quality. Rachel, who currently lives and works in London says she is thrilled to have her work exhibited at ArtCatto.
