About Me

I am an artist based in Birmingham, England and have always had a passion for art and design and being creative. I find that it becomes a part of your life rather just a job.

I studied Visual Arts at university where I explored many different artistic techniques. My favourite forms of expression back then were large paintings and 3D creations in clay. I studied at Central Connecticut State University for the last 6 months of my degree where I found my love of wire sculpting and held my first exhibition. It was there that I also tried my hand at jewellery design and worked behind the scenes on theatre productions, creating large murals for parts of the set design.

This kind of artistic interpretation made me really happy and I found painting murals and creating jewellery and wire sculptures to be very therapeutic and great way to express myself.

I have travelled for a number of years and gained life experience from visiting different countries and learning about their cultures.

I was lucky enough to live in New Zealand for 8 years and it was there that I began painting murals professionally, mainly for children’s bedrooms or play areas. I also, as a hobby, started creating beaded jewellery.

On my return to the UK in 2013, I moved back to my home town of Birmingham. I worked in a school for 3 years creating murals of their logo and painting inspirational quotes around the school. I also designed posters, leaflets and advertising materials, but my passion has always been for the mural painting.

I am now working as an artist, creating beautiful bespoke sculptures, pieces of jewellery and murals for homes and businesses. 

If you would like any further information, to enquire about any of the items I create or to order a bespoke piece of art work then please do not hesitate to contact me. I will then liaise with you personally to create something unique to you. 

This little section is all about me,
To show you I'm human and let you see.
What I'm about and what makes me tick,
To engage you with content and make you click.

So, I am Rachel and I have a beautiful son,
I'm bubbly and chatty and I like to have fun.
I'm an artist, a painter, a sculptor too,
I make jewellery and paint murals to name but a few.

I spend my spare time as an experimental cook,
With my son riding bikes or reading a book.
Searching castles or beaches for fascinating rocks,
or making puppets from numerous odd socks.

I take inspiration from my love of buildings and nature,
So full of curves, lines, colours and texture.
Everything I make is handmade and bespoke,
So take a browse and ask me for a quote.
