Rachel Kaufmann has a background in paper and book conservation that continually informs her practice, providing a foundation for a holistic and traditionally rooted approach to realising art on paper. A second degree in book arts guided her interest in applying her study of the arts of the book to her own artistic expression.
A period in Rajasthan learning miniature painting inspired Rachel to pursue a Master’s Degree at The Prince’s School of Traditional Arts where she has refined her interest in the forms, materials and techniques of European, Persian and Indian book arts. Her focus now is on developing her own material and visual palette, applying what she has learned from these sister traditions to a more personal imagery without compromising the integral beauty and spiritual meaning that they embody.
