Rachel Holborow

Although Rachel has been making pen and ink art for independent record sleeves and posters for decades, she ventured into printmaking from March 2021 – specialising in intricate lino prints onto sustainable, textured, handmade papers. Her work often explores the relationship between humanity and the natural world – especially plants – recognising the symbiotic relationship between decay and vitality, and often slips into the surreal with joy and humor. She finds that close observation through drawing from real life can reveal all manner of unexpected truths.

She has supported fund raising ventures by contributing her prints – including One of Many Postcard and The Thought Press initiatives on Instagram.

Her work is available on Etsy: https://rkwanderings.etsy.com . She also uses Instagram as a diary of her art and print explorations as rkwanderings.
