Rachel's mission as an artist is to convey her passion for conserving biodiversity by celebrating its beauty and sharing it with the world.
My journey to founding Rachel Brooks Art was not a straight forward one. I have always loved drawing and painting from a young age, during college this was set to be my only career path. I had already drafted my first university application for an Art course but a summer spent volunteering on a whale and dolphin research project in the Atlantic changed everything! Living with a group of young passionate conservationists really shifted my perspective of the world, I decided that this was exactly where I needed to be. I changed my already written Fine Art application to study a BSc in Zoology at the University of Leeds.
A new chapter
My new chapter is telling these ocean stories through my art work. Living in the stunning West Highlands, I have the sea on the doorstep and mountains in my back garden. Being immersed in nature constantly refreshes me with ideas of ways to share this incredible planet with you - Thank you for being part of my journey!
