A Graduate of the Year (2000) from Crawford College of Art Cork, she has exhibited extensively nationally; including 7 solo exhibitions to date, in addition to being selected for group shows and numerous Public Collections.
Her paintings express an inner narrative, documenting emotions with observational everyday scenes. Rachel’s work combines text, pattern, and abstract shapes with landscapes to create a layered dreamlike image. She uses dip pens, brushes, lino print, paint and inks to create this effect.
