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 in 1986, specialising in Illustration. 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. Please note:- all my prints are hand burnished which means each print takes a lot of effort to produce. I often make editions of only 3-5 prints at a time, which is why there is a variety of editions numbers avalable at any one time. If you are interested in a particular print and there are none available, unless the edition has sold out, I can make one on demand.
