Rachel Ross is an Edinburgh based artist. Her compositions encapsulate thoughts and memories suggested by the placement and intrinsic beauty of seemingly mundane objects.

She has had solo exhibitions in galleries throughout the UK and her work has been shown in several major open exhibitions including The Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour, The Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts (RGI). In 2010, she was winner of the Art Exposure Gallery Award at the RGI. In 2012, her work was selected for The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition at the Mall Galleries, London and she was a runner up for the Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize.
Artist Statement: I have a love of things. If my work belongs to any tradition it is that of the still life. Through careful composition, memories and emotions can be projected on to the familiar, ordinary possessions I choose to make my subject, giving them heightened weight and meaning.
