A6 (10x15cm) original artwork
Bidding starts at £50
Since graduating from Chelsea School of Art in 1991, Rachel has exhibited extensively in London, the UK and internationally. Her 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.
Artist Statement: My oil paintings of women stem from my childhood preoccupation with observing the women around me, the relationships between them and their interactions. Using found narratives as a starting point, I reference these stories while celebrating the strong, seductive and powerful female form.
