About me

Hi there! I'm Rachel, creator of Studio 54.

I've loved art ever since I was a young child, always sketching and colouring and 'selling' my masterpieces for pennys to my family (bless!).

My favourite subject in school was always art, it was like an extended lunch break when we'd have a double class after lunch. It was always the subject I enjoyed the most, getting to practise my hobby during school hours and getting one-on-one guidance from our fantastic teacher - win win!

Unfortunately I didn't see a career in art, so I didn't pursue it in college, instead I opted for Business and Event Management and graduated with a First Class Honours degree in 2015 and started building my career in Sales and Marketing. Leaving down my pencils and brushes, art left my life unintentionally.

Then Covid-19 hit in March 2020, and after going through the yoga, baking, running and cleaning phases of lockdown, my mother sent me some watercolour paints and paper she had laying around at home to keep me occupied...and I guess the rest is self explanatory!

I've realised that creating art is what makes me happy, and I strive to deliver that happiness to my customers and admirers.  With each painting I create, my goal is to positively energise not only a space in your home, but also a space in your heart.

'I purchased a piece as a Christmas gift for a family member and it was amazing. The quality of the drawing and the material was excellent, down to how the piece was gift wrapped & presented. The professionalism was top class from Rachel. Well done and good luck for the future. I will definitely be back for more again.'


'Rachel was absolutely fantastic to work with. Nothing was a problem and she made the most amazing picture framed for a very special lady to symbolise our love for her. Will most definitely be using her service again. Thank you so much Rachel x'


'I have been following Rachel online for a while, and finally got to order a custom commission from her. She was absolutely fantastic and lovely. The finished work is beautiful. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a heartfelt and touching gift for someone.'
