Rachel began designing in 2001 whilst on maternity leave from her teaching job as Head of ICT at a Bristol Primary School. She started by creating collage artwork from hand-made papers. Demand for her work led to home sales and local exhibitions. From here, she branched out into the gift packaging and stationery industry, which she remained in for a number of years.
Rachel started out using paper cut-outs, photography, and ephemera. In time, she began working with illustration. Most recently Rachel has been designing for textile, product, home and packaging. Since 2001, she has exhibited in many trade and retail shows from London to San Francisco. Her work has sold throughout the United Kingdom, America and Australia, and has been featured in a variety of UK Magazines. Below are just a few samples from each period.
