Rachel Mcnaughton

Rachel is a Yorkshire lass, born in Heckmondwike and brought up in the mill towns of the West Riding. She now lives just north of Leeds in Bardsey, a small village near Wetherby. She has no training in art beyond O level. She spent too much time talking in class to be allowed to go on to A level! After teaching for a few years, she started evening classes in watercolour and her hobby grew into a full time occupation. Rachel paints mostly in watercolours and flowers are a favourite subject, but she has had a go at all sorts of subjects from light aircraft to animals. She loves painting the Yorkshire countryside and warmer lands too, although there isn’t a lot of opportunity for the latter! She takes lots of photos (and sketch if time allows, but as she‘s usually with her family and dog, that isn’t often!) Rachel is a member of an art club in Boston Spa and teaches three classes of adults to paint each week. She shares it‘s good to get out, because painting is a fairly solitary occupation. Most of the time its just her and Radio 4... Oh, and the dog, of course! Rachel considers herself very lucky to be doing something she enjoys so much!View Full Bio
