Rachel completed an arts foundation course at Northampton School of Art before going on to study for a BA Hons in Fine Art at Maidstone in Kent. During her three years there she studied textiles as a subsidiary subject and this became a great influence on her work; using felt making, dyeing, and weaving to express her ideas. Living on the North Devon coast and being by nature a collector gave rise to making the driftwood boats and birds for Rachel. The winter storms provide her with materials and summer gives her the opportunity to be out in her shed assembling pieces. Other elements have started to creep in from the bottom of old tool and sewing boxes, all part of the jetsam of life, which she finds so fascinating.
