Her community art practice has supported the creation of exhibitions, commissions, stage sets, public works and consultations about place-making and public events.

Her work is rooted in the engagement of site, community, and research. She has been a tutor at the University of Strathclyde’s Architecture Department and a visiting tutor at Glasgow School of Art where she shares her experiences and extensive knowledge of working creatively with communities.

Rachel has collaborated with In Cahootz for over a decade. She has worked closely with Creative Citizens participants in establishing a regular ArtClub and in 2023 she curated their first public art exhibition, The Kitchen Collective, in the Project Room at Trongate 103.  The exhibition concluded with a spoken word event performed by eight Creative Citizens. The art exhibition has become an annual event.

Rachel continues a studio-based practice, researching and exhibiting her own work. She has had exhibitions at Tramway, Lillie Gallery, Milngavie, Glasgow’s GoMA and her work has been acquired by Glasgow Museums.
