The paintings of Rachel Ross are on the surface of it still lifes of everyday objects found around the home; cutlery, keys, letters, a penknife. Familiar accessories to our lives, we pay them little attention day to day, but sometimes their significance is of greater value than their use.

Rachel intuitively falls upon such cherished possessions and arranges them with her own care; sensitively painting their appearance we see their marks of wear and tear and love. She reminds us what we treasure most - the simple reminders of our own belonging.

Rachel is a graduate of Central St Martin’s College of Art and Design. An illustrator for 20 years, she began her personal painting career in 2007. She has exhibited in the major Scottish Open Exhibitions and been selected in key British Competitions including the Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize where she was a runner up in 2012.
