About Me

Personal Statement

Rachel has over 15 years of experience taking people on creative journeys. She has held creative workshops across the world – from palazzos in Venice to lighthouses in Shetland via Antarctica. Rachel builds itineraries that develop skills, as well as expand the imagination, increase creative confidence and build lasting friendships.

Drawing inspiration from the beauty of paper, the familiarity of a well-thumbed book, shorelines, flea markets and foreign cities; Rachel launched her online e-course PaperLove in 2014 to enable people, regardless of location, to work with her to develop their creative ideas and techniques.

Commissions include a two-metre high book sculpture for fashion designer Helen Storey, a window display for Conran, and bespoke Bookquets. View the Commissions gallery at

Rachel read English Literature at Edinburgh University, trained in Bookbinding at the London College of Printing and completed masters degrees in Book Art at Camberwell College of Art and Printmaking at Edinburgh College of Art.

Year Established: 1998
