    My wife and I saw some of your work in Scarborough hospital and are interested in what you do. Do you create art for sale to the public? If so, where can we view it?

      Hi David, Thanks for your comment, I’m so pleased you’re interested in my work.
      I do indeed sell art work to the public. I do commissions too. I have some glass window hangings in Staithes Studios new art gallery, and drawings too – https://www.facebook.com/StaithesStudios?fref=ts
      I also have some work in the Pyramid gallery, York. http://www.pyramidgallery.com/about-pyramid-gallery/
      Also, if you want to give me a call or drop me an email I’d be happy to show you round my studio in Scarborough, where you can see other artworks, and samples of techniques I use in commissions… rachel@rachelwelford.co.uk 07740 309553.

      thanks again and hope to speak to you soon.
      best wishes
