Rachel Brooks - Wildlife Artist & Storyteller

Rachel is a professional wildlife artist, scientific illustrator, story teller, scuba and wildlife guide. As an accomplished scuba diver, instructing for over 8 years in world class locations such as the Lembeh Straits, Great Barrier Reef, the Ningaloo Reef World Heritage Site and the Sea of the Hebrides MPA, she has a personal connection to her subjects. Her time in the field inspires her creations, for Rachel, these two disciplines go hand in hand.
