Rachel Wyndham

Rachel Wyndham lives in a small hamlet in the South Downs. She was born in Kenya and spent her formative years there and in Zimbabwe where her love of wide open spaces, colour and light was also born.
She studied drawing and painting at Beaux Arts in Paris, at the Art Students League of New York and at Morley College in London, where she still paints under the tutelage of Maggi Hambling.
Rachel draws great inspiration from the surrounding Sussex landscape, with it’s vast chalky downland and close proximity to the sea. She paints outside in all weathers and at all times of the year. Her own garden and love of plants and trees also provide a rich source of painting subjects. Portraiture, both human and animal, is another enduring love. As is painting in far flung and wild places, the Hebrides being a favourite retreat.
