Rachel Rosie West is a collage artist. She uses found, dyed, patterned and vintage papers to create quirky representations of everyday objects, flowers and narrative scenes. She is inspired by many things from the qualities of nature, to surrealism and charity shop knick-knacks. Her tiny torn pieces of paper combine anything from music manuscript to ordnance survey maps which form the final image as a whole. Her work has a certain individuality, which stems from the layering of paper and the pure jolliness of the subject matter. Rachel loves modern print companies and looks at design led greetings cards and pattern blogs to keep up with current trends. She graduated from Staffordshire University in 2011 with a First Class honours degree in Surface Pattern Design. She works on her collage pieces alongside her day job, and lives in Stoke-on-Trent.
