"Rachael originally from the Wirral, Merseyside UK graduated from the University of Leeds in 2005, with a BA (Hons) in Textile & Fashion Design.

Her first job was as a print & design technician whilst also working as a part time freelancer in the textile industry. She then went on to progress with her textile & stitched screen printed pieces and held her first solo exhibition called 'stitched' in 2006 at the Brahm Gallery Leeds.

Later that year Rachael was awarded 1st prize in the Janome creative competiton for a layered paper skirt design.

Then specialising in surface pattern design, she developed her signature style of layering & textures. This signature style is present in both her screenprinted pieces & CAD work.
Wanting to obtain further experience & CAD knowledge Rachael applied for a job with one of the greetings market leaders, where she worked as a mac designer for two years specialising in surface pattern design. She then set up her own design studio in May 2008 (based in Leeds) where she now works as a freelance surface pattern designer & textile artist.

Rachael is currently working on her own label but also has a variety of clients in the UK, Europe & the USA from design studios to private buyers in the art, ceramics, interior, fashion, greetings & marketing industries. She also plans another solo exhibit in the near future.

Rachael has recently had her work published in a current design book called 'Patterns' (P61 abstract patterns & P105 retro patterns) by Drusilla Cole LKP publishing. Seven designs have also been published in 'Patterns' by Maomao publications. Her work is also featured in the 'Exciting World of Pattern Design' by Zeixs Feierabend Unique Books'. Four pieces of her work have also been selected for the forthcoming 'Print & Pattern' book which will be out in 2010.

Rachael's likes to bring her own personality to her work & creates fun quirky designs 'patterns to make you happy'. Her positive & energetic approach was recognised in 2009 as she was awarded the title of 'the happiest person in Britain 2009' from her excited & happy twitter posts. Her patterns are spontaneous as Rachael loves to draw with her right & left hand and sometimes even with her eyes closed. This way her patterns are unique & full of energy, she takes inspiration from everything around her & a lot of her motifs come from her own mood & personality".
