Rachel Yallop

Rachel lives near Malvern, and has been a freelance calligrapher and lettering designer for over 25 years. She was elected as an associate of the RBSA in 2009, and as a member in 2011. She is a founding member of the Letter Exchange and an honoured fellow of the Calligraphy and Lettering Arts Society. Her love of letters stems from a lifelong passion for drawing. Her calligraphic pieces explore form, space, tension and freedom of line. Many of the look at letters in an abstract way, using thier shapes to create large, dynamic designs. She often uses mixed media, combining gouache, charcoal and pastel, and employs a variety of different tools in creating one piece.
