Influenced by nature, mythology and folklore Rachael paints and draws a variety of animals and other nature inspired designs. Working mainly in watercolour and pen & ink, sometimes the images are painted directly on to text.
With a love of hares these noble creatures with their large silky ears and alert expressive eyes feature regularly in Rachael's work.
The name 'The Fireside Dragon' was inspired by the idea that Dragons, mythologically fierce fire breathing animals, are instead gentle creatures wanting nothing more than to curl up on a rug by a roaring fire, have a nap and read a good book.
Rachael also works in ceramic creating hares and other creatures. Details of where her work is available can be found at www.fireside-dragon.co.uk
