Rachel lives on a small-holding in Llysfaen near Colwyn Bay and has been experimenting with different mediums of paint since she was a child. She gained a BTEC National Diploma in Art and Design at Bangor Art College, where she was taught by Lesley Jones and Peter Prendergast. Before having her three children she worked in her father’s architectural business and undertook a ceramics diploma course at Llandrillo College and used this medium to make Raku jewellery. She has now returned to drawing and painting.
Her work demonstrates her love for this beautiful part of Wales which was nurtured during many childhood camping visits to the Llŷn Peninsula. She enjoys painting coastal and rural scenes including her flock of sheep and other livestock.
