Rachel Reynolds

Rachel is a printed textile designer and artist living and working in Southampton. She creates a unique collection of hand drawn and digitally printed luxury interior textiles, homeware and artwork inspired by nature and architecture. In 2012 Rachel gained an MA in Textile Design at Winchester School of Art and launched her first ‘Heritage’ interior collection of wallpapers and fabrics in 2014. Elements of personal heritage and identity from memorabilia and architecture, including Southampton City walls informed her designs. Rachel recently developed these original drawings and watercolours to produce a series of postcards, greeting cards and Giclee prints based upon Southampton landmarks. Rachel regularly works to commission with projects including site specific textiles for building atria in Europe and Los Angeles, alongside freelance design work most recently for the museum and heritage sector.

Rachel’s art print ‘Passenger through time’ was selected for the exhibition ‘In Search of a New World’ at Southampton City Art Gallery inspired by the Mayflower, journeys and family heritage.
