My name is Rachel, and I’m so glad you’re here!

I am a freelance artist based in Staffordshire, UK, available for commissions and collaborations. If you would like to work with meĀ please get in touch:

  • via the ‘Contact’ form on this blog,
  • or email me direct atĀ sunraysister@gmail.com
  • or browse my Etsy shop for private commissions.


I currently specialise in watercolour illustrations, combined with gouache, ink and coloured pencil. Portraits are my particular favourite, but all subject matter will be considered. Please see the portfolio section of this blog for examples of my recent work.

Since November 2017 I have been working on a personal project, which involves creating art everyday for 365 days in a row. You can follow the progress of this project on my Instagram.

I also produce YouTube videos, which I upload on my channel. These explore another side of my creativity, including paper crafts and pen-pals, as well as my art creation process.

I advocate a slower-pace in life, and a mindful approach; I enjoy sipping green tea, walking in the woods, experimenting with paper, practicing yoga everyday, exploring vintage emporiums, playing piano, studying plants, animals & stars, and many other things…

I hope you will join me on my creative journey, whether professionally, or simply as an observer. I am so grateful for you!


Peace and love,

Rachel x
