An inborn sense of commonality between species, including humans, and a persistent urge to express this motivates Rachel’s creative thinking. A long-standing fascination with mythology and storytelling also informs much of her work, in 2D as well as sculpture. The public work cast in bronze: Fly; the Walking Dog of Kington standing in the centre of town, which has been her home since the early 2000s, alludes a stream of hound based legends of the region.
Rachel is professional artist specialising in sculpture with over 40 years of experience. Studying at Bournville then Norwich art schools 1974-80 followed by further studies at Lincoln College of Art and Technology and an internship at the Royal Pavilion. Full membership of the RBSA was granted in 2008.
