Born in 1970, Rachel graduated from Kingston University (1993) with a degree in Illustration, followed by a PGCE from The London Institute of Education. She then spent 18 years as a full time teacher of art in London, Derbyshire and Edinburgh before taking a career break to become a mum.
She loves observing the 'every day', be it snippets of any old routine or the contented, thoughtful character walking Fido.
Rachel describes living in East Lothian as a truly inspirational place to be and she gets to enjoy the beautiful beaches, with her best friend every day.
Her paintings are usually on board, using acrylic and emulsion and she hopes more than anything that her work makes people smile.
