Bold, colourful, intriguing and timeless - Rachel’s images encompass a universal appeal... Her style may be pared down. And the impression projected one of effortlessness. But that sums up the skills behind the success of this personable illustrator who, in combining personal passion with a creative calling, fulfills every artist’s ambition.”
— Hampshire Life Magazine 2018
