I'm Rachel, a sign painter based in Glasgow, Scotland. I specialise in designing and painting lettering – large or small, interior or exterior, on shop fronts, on walls and almost any other surface. Please have a look at the tabs above to see my previous work and get in touch if there's a project you'd like me to work on with you.
I often host workshops for companies, educational institutions and the general public. Please see my social media channels for announcements or to arrange for private workshops please get in touch.
I studied graphic design at Edinburgh College of Art and Massachusetts College of Art and Design, graduating in June 2016. I spent six months working with Ciaran Globel of Globel Bros in Glasgow before starting my own business in June 2017.
I am now based in Mount Florida Gallery & Studios in the South Side of Glasgow. I work somewhere in between art, design and craft – which I find very exciting. I love what I do because every brief is completely different and I continually learn with every project.
I also organise the Ladies, Wine & Design Glasgow chapter – a global movement of women designers – with ilka design studio. See the website for more info and to book a space.
