Rachel Sargent was born in Dorset by the coast near Poole, which is where her love and appreciation of her natural surroundings was formed. She studied painting at the Roehampton Institute, University of London and returned to her native Dorset in 1986, since when she has been a keen walker and observer of nature. In 2012 she moved to her present studio – a converted cowshed looking out to the amazing Hambledon Hill at Gold Hill Organic Farm in Child Okeford. Rachel also runs a programme of workshops throughout the year at Springhead and Ashmore Village Hall.
