rachel stockham's Profile
I was born in Portsmouth, in the south of England. I have always drawn and painted from an early age, having been inspired by my mother who also paints in watercolours.
Nature is my main theme. I paint landscapes,plants,people and animals. My love of cats has been my recent focus. I like to capture their character and elegance as well as the more humourous side of their nature.
I graduated from Winchester school of Art in 1997 with a BA hons degree where I explored a range of media including installation. Since graduating I returned to the more traditional art of painting as I like to produce work that can be purchased,taken home and enjoyed. It is only recently that I discovered watercolour as my preferred medium as it allows me to be experimental and I love it's luminosity,transparency and the many effects that can be achieved.
