Rachel is a chartered architect, having worked in practice for a number of years before embarking upon a career in illustration; a move prompted by being shortlisted for the Serco Prize for Illustration in 2014. Since then her work has been featured in various publications, including the official Tower Bridge guidebook, and is sold in a selection of private galleries. Her latest work is the Official Poster for the 2019 Henley Royal Regatta.
Rachel’s background in architecture has influenced her artistic style and subject matter. She likes to capture the elements of a scene using geometric forms to portray a moment in time.
Rachel illustrated the Oxford Cambridge Boat Race for an exhibition on the History of Rowing in Putney. It was this that captured her interest in the sport, which is now a main focus of her work.
She trained at Newcastle University, Central St Martins and Putney School of Art. She is a member of the RIBA, AOI and Putney Artists.
