Raquel Alvarez – Apricots and Redcurrents


Raquel Alvarez Sardina was born in Barcelona in 1967. At the age of seventeen she joined ‘Academia Leonardo da Vinci’ and in 1986 she started a Degree in Fine Arts. Whilst doing the degree she attended ‘Academia Sant Vicenç’ and ‘ Academia Boter-Santalo’ in Barcelona and a drawing course at ‘ Academia Lorenzo de Medici’ in Florence. After graduating in 1991 she came to England where she studied a Masters Degree at Cardiff University. The beauty of nature inspires her, by its form, colour and texture. She has developed a personal contemporary style to represent beauty. Her painting method is slow, precise and full of feeling. It is as though she wants us to slow down and contemplate a few simple objects in silence. She surrounds her life with those fruit and flowers that provide constant inspiration to her work. A walk through her garden reveals quinces, pears, apples, gooseberries, apricots, raspberries and a selection of roses.

June 2016 she was elected Member of the Society of Women Artists, HRH Princess Michael of Kent presented her with The President and Vice President’s Choice Award for the Best Work of Art in the Annual Exhibition, Mall Galleries, London. Her work has been exhibited both in Spain and England. Living and working in the Cotswolds her work is represented by the Biscuit Factory in Newcastle, Concept Gallery in Glasgow and The Morningside Gallery in Edinburgh.
