Rachael Coward is an artist and curator working across installation, printmaking and book works with an interest in heritage, behaviour, people and places.

Recent projects include ‘Structures’ Residency at Newlyn Art Gallery, Cornwall; ‘The Gardener’s Labyrinth’ at Enys House, Cornwall; ‘Outside / In’ at Back Lane West, Cornwall; and Curator in Residence at CAMP, Plymouth.


She is also an art educator and facilitator, frequently working with young people and families. She has recently worked with Tate, Milton Keynes Arts Centre, and the South West Heritage Trust. She currently lives and works in Cornwall.
