Hello! I am Rachel Davis, an artist living and working in Hampshire. I have wanted to be an artist for as long as I can ever remember and have to pinch myself that this is really how I have been fortunate enough to make my living these last five years.
I take inspiration from memories, experiences, day to day life, poems,songs, and the seasons. I try to inject them with as much colour, pattern and underlying narrative as possible. I want people to feel happier for looking at my work.
I work with a variety of materials including acrylic paint, ink, and paper or fabric collage. I love to make marks within the paint when it is still wet to reveal other colours beneath.
I currently sell original via my home studio, Facebook page, Instagram, Art2Arts (https://www.art2arts.co.uk/rachel-davis) and THAT Gallery pop up gallery in Festival Place, Basingstoke. I also co-curate this gallery. Over the last five years I have built up a private client base and have been fortunate to have work go to Finland, Denmark, South Africa, Australia, Germany,Majorca, Spain and America. This years' goal is to get work to some new places on the map.
I am always on the look out for new outlets to share my work through and am interested in collaborations and community projects.
