I am Rachael of RLBrown Arts. I am a designer and artist who specialises in fused glass. I work from my Hampshire studio to create pieces that reflect my love of colour and nature. My inspiration comes from flora, fauna and my local landscape. I often use lots of simple repeated shapes to create an abstracted version of my inspiration.
At the end of a very emotional and upsetting week, the appearance of a spectacular triple rainbow stopped me in my tracks. Even though I was soaked to the skin, I stood and watched this rainbow for what felt like hours. The purity of the colours, the bold simplicity of the arches gave me such a sense of calm and clarity that it allowed me to see beyond my current problems and focus on making life changes.
This experience has inspired me to create a range of rainbow pieces from simple stars to huge wall panels, in the hope that viewing these will give others the same clarity and comfort that I found that day.
From giftware to home decor, windchimes to wall art, my work reflects my love of bold colours and pattern. I welcome private commissions and have created work for a variety of homes and workplaces.
