Rachel Ricketts RBSA

Rachel’s work recently featured on the Saatchi gallery site. She exhibits widely, and her work is held in many prominent private and public collections, both in the UK and overseas. She was awarded RBSA status in 2008. Rachel’s artistic education began at Bournville school of Art, followed by a degree in fine art at Norwich School of art, graduating in 1980. After further study, she qualified as a restorer of wall paintings, and following this worked with a team for a year on the restoration of Brighton’s Royal Pavilion, then for another seven years conserving
ecclesiastical frescoes and other wall paintings. Rachel’s urge to create new artworks became irresistible, so she went home to the studio and bought a puppy. The little dog inspired her to make sculpture, and the idea grew and blossomed, surprising her with success. Rachel says: “I miss colour, but don’t want to give up sculpture in order to reintroduce it in my work”. Hence, the fresco-type paintings on ceramic sculpture.
Awards include:
The Lucas Sculpture Prize 2006
The Reg Lewis Sculpture Prize 2007 from the RBSA.
