Rachel has twenty years of experience taking people on creative journeys. She has held bookart workshops across the world – from palazzos in Venice to lighthouses in Shetland via Antarctica. Rachel builds itineraries that develop skills, as well as expand the imagination, increase confidence and build lasting friendships.
Drawing her inspiration from the beauty of paper, the familiarity of a well-thumbed book, shorelines, flea markets and foreign cities; Rachel launched her online e-course PaperLove in 2014 to enable people, regardless of location, to work with her to develop their creative ideas and techniques.
Rachel is regularly commissioned; her favourite projects include a two-metre high book sculpture for fashion designer Helen Storey, a window display for Conran, and her first wedding bookquet. View the Commissions gallery.
Rachel read English Literature at Edinburgh University, trained in Bookbinding at the London College of Printing and completed masters degrees in Book Art at Camberwell College of Art and Printmaking at Edinburgh College of Art.
