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.”

About Rachel

Hello. I am a freelance illustrator based in Hampshire, UK.

My fresh style, with its clarity of line, vibrant colour and sense of movement, aims to bring each project to life and to inspire and delight.

I am especially interested in collaborating with brands that celebrate the natural world and support nature conservation, environmental education, wellness and the simple things in life.

I produce my own eco-friendly greetings card, art prints and illustrated gift range, rhudsonillustration. My work is sold in galleries and gift shops in the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
