Rachel Clarke/ Book Edition

Rachel was born in Southampton in 1969 and is a sculptural ceramic artist living in South Wales where she has her own small studio. She has been married for 34 years and has a 24 year old son. After spending many years in general medical practice as well as in the legal world, she decided to follow a lifelong ambition to practise art. She obtained a first class honours degree in Fine Art with the Open University, and is a post graduate in Fine Art, from Cardiff Metropolitan (2021).

Because of her medical background she has always had a fascination with fundamental elements of human existence, such as respiration, blood, sleep and the unconscious mind. These elements repeatedly surface in many of her works.

During her degree, whilst researching the unconscious mind, she discovered she was aphantasic - a rare neurodivergent condition which affects an estimated 3-5% of the population - because of this she is unable to visualise imagery, having no ‘mind’s eye’.
