Level 3 main corridor of Salisbury District Hospital
Rachel is a New Forest artist who paints landscapes and seascapes in situ, using a variety of media and techniques. She says: ‘Ever since I can remember I have had a passion for drawing, painting and the creative. I am caught by a mood, an atmosphere, by colour and light and feel compelled to transfer it to paper. I grew up in rural Oxfordshire drawing everything around me, filling any spare time either outside exploring the countryside or inside painting.’
Although gaining entry to art college, Rachel ended up pursuing Biology and Geography at University, but always spent more time on illustrations than the written word. After graduating with a BSc and later MSc in Environmental Management, she was lucky enough to find a job which took her travelling extensively throughout both Scotland and the Himalayas. It was here, immersed in the incredible scenery that Rachel felt really inspired to draw and paint more seriously.
Rachel moved to the New Forest in 2001 where she now lives with her family. She is continually learning and adapting styles and mainly paint ‘en plein air’, putting the finishing touches to a piece once back home. Visit the artist's website - www.rachelbronsdon.co.uk
