Rachel Sykes

I have been a member of Huddersfield Art Society for 5 years, and I paint and draw a wide variety of subjects including landscape, townscapes, still life/floral and abstract.

I work in watercolor, acrylic, graphite and ink, and I have found acrylic to be my favourite medium. I exhibit my work in local exhibitions and I currently have paintings on display in the NHS Trust.
