About

Rachel is originally from England where she studied for a Degree in Three Dimensional Design in Glass and Ceramics. After years of dabbling in various media Rachel has settled with the description of mixed media textile artist. This diverse area blurs the boundaries between disciplines and materials. This suits Rachel’s experimental nature and resonates with the idea that art can be made of anything.

Her textile work is a fusion of fabric and threads often containing an unexpected element thrown in. Her stitched work is textually rich and she would combine the contemplative nature of hand stitch with machine embroidery.

Rachel uses natural fabrics such as linen and canvas as backgrounds, these are then painted and dyed before being embellished with embroidery.

 

Rachel works from her studio space in Bridge Street Studios, Dundalk, Co Louth. She makes products such as wearable art pieces, pendants and brooches, embroidered hoops, and framed pieces. She also creates a range of one off pieces. The inspiration for Rachel’s work is often taken from nature, gardens, landscapes and seascapes.

“I have always had a close connection with nature and a passion for flowers and gardening. I come from a family of gardeners, stitchers, makers and writers, all of those elements have shaped my artistic journey. The journey is on going and I never tire from whatever discoveries or observations may come my way”.
