Rachel is originally from England where she studied for a degree in 3 Dimensional Design, Glass and Ceramics. Slowly over the course of a few years studying short courses in a variety of textile techniques, she discovered the art of felt making. This captured Rachel’s imagination as the technique was versatile enough to be used both three dimensionally and two dimensionally.
Latterly over the last two years Rachel has combined her love of hand and machine stitching with felt and in recent times this has progressed to working directly onto canvas fabric, resulting in densely stitched panels.
Rachel’s inspiration is often taken from nature,flowers,gardens wildlife and the landscape.
Rachel’s art work ranges from small wearable pieces to varying sizes of framed work.
She has exhibited extensively with Bridge Street studios and Louth Craftmark.
