An awarding artist, Rachel is always looking for new challenges in her painting. This theme of buildings is something Rachel is very passionate about, as they do influence our everyday lives the vibrant use of colour in her paintings is a colour exaggeration intentionally done to push peoples imaginations and sometimes their belief in what should be right, almost like political correctness (maybe it is left up to the eye of the beholder…).
Rachel also is a mother of 2 children. As life moves on, so does the development of Rachel’s artwork, creating a lot more depth in colour and detail, which gives these paintings a totally new dimension.
