Also at this studio:

Printmaking: linocuts, cardboard cuts and monoprints.

Royal Academy selected 2018, shortlisted 2019/2020. 

This year's new print series have been inspired by my trips to Kew Gardens.

I find inspiration from the beautiful buildings that surround me. I enjoy taking the time to look and capture their beauty on paper. All my prints are produced without a press by hand burnishing the back of the print with a wooden or metal spoon, a Japanese baren, and a Slama Press. This means each print in the edition has variations, making it a totally unique piece of art.

Rachel graduated from Maidstone College of Art, specialising in Illustration, many moons ago. After 25 years of illustrating for various publishing houses and publications, she decided to take up her first love of printmaking. She now concentrates on honing her skills and interests into making completely handmade original prints.

Open for studio visits all year round, just get in touch to make an appointment or to enquire about any of the prints on this site.

Winter Palm House 1/25
Original Monoprint 30 x 28cm image size. 53 x 53cm framed - £295.
(Limited edition of 25, 2 available)
The Palm House at Kew, on a cold winter's evening. This particular print will only be available for sale at the Artists at Home Open Studio event in June. I will be making a variable edition of 25 prints, if you would like a different one, do get in touch. This monoprint has been made by painting, rolling, dabbing, and wiping ink on and off a piece of glass. My print paper is then laid over the top of the glass, rubbed on the back and lifted up to see what happens. Built up from many layers of colour, this is a variable edition, but as each print is produced only one at time, the colour and marks will change, meaning every print is a unique piece of art.

£245

Kew Night Flight
Linocut/Monoprint Image:- 30 x 30cm. Framed:- £255 - 53 x 53cm
(Limited edition of 50, 5 available)
The incredible wrought iron architecture of Kew Palm House was realised by Decimus Burton and Richard Turner, who’s understanding of shipbuilding and ‘deck beam’ technology made it possible for the huge expanse of the Palm House to be built with very little internal support. I wanted to keep this print very simple to 'show off' that architecture, deciding to print one series in mono. Inspired by the number of flights that go over Kew Gardens I added a single plane and wiped the ink off the plate very carefully to create the vapour trail.

£195

Moonlit Palm House
Linocut Image:- 30 x 30cm. Framed:- £255 - 53 x 53cm
(Limited edition of 50, 5 available)
The incredible wrought iron architecture of Kew Palm House was realised by Decimus Burton and Richard Turner, who’s understanding of shipbuilding and ‘deck beam’ technology made it possible for the huge expanse of the Palm House to be built with very little internal support. I wanted to keep this print very simple to 'show off' that architecture, a full moon adds balance to the composition.
