Rachel is a professional sculptor and member of the RBSA, having studied fine art at Bournville and Norwich Schools of Art, with over twenty years experience in her chosen discipline. Based in Kington, at Studio 54 Gallery, where visitors who would like to see work in progress are welcome and where some of her paintings and drawings can also be seen.
Animal subjects feature prominently in her work, with themes influenced by folk tales, other literature and impressions which have lasted since childhood. Horses, dogs, animal and human/animal hybrids are well represented in her work, the latter a particularly exciting theme currently.
The media Rachel uses to produce her three dimensional work are many and varied: Bronze, mild steel, ceramics and resin based material, including Jesmonite. This provides a suitable foundation for surface decoration similar to fine lime-plaster as used in fresco secco.
Rachel was a wall-paintings conservator before sculpting took over.
Most of her paintings are in oil on paper.
Commissions are invited occasionally (see image of Brayford) please consult the artist.
