Rachael Dickens makes work using a wide variety of materials .
She trained at Goldsmiths College in the late 1980s in Fine Art Textiles.
Much of the work is inspired by cold water swimming, at outdoor pools and more recently in the North Sea off the Kent coast where she has a house – see the Artists House. Some of her work is in response to the plight of refugees arriving on the shores of Kent. Currently living and swimming in Greece she is experimenting with lino and silk screen printing.
