Rachael Adams lives and works on the fringes of Brighton, UK. She is a fine-artist whose work is primarily painting, yet also encompasses photography, text and printed-matter. She is also a designer & publisher, working predominantly (and collaboratively) with writers & artists.

Her recent paintings explore visual conventions of the landscape that convey recalled anticipated events, describing that formation in the landscape where the visible and the anticipated overlap, collide or conflict.
