Meet the Maker
Hi, I'm Rachel and I am the designer behind Oh So Flamingo.
Art and design has always been in my life in different ways, as I went through school and college I took Music, Art, Performing Arts and Photography.
I then joined the Army as a Musician after completing training I decided I wanted more of a challenge so I changed to the Royal Electrical Mechanical Engineers where I became an Electronics Technician where I worked on tanks electronics and electrical design.
After serving for 10 years I left and start my own weddings and events company which aloud me to be girly again, I ran this for 4 years until the birth of my second child, when I decided to go back into a salaried paid roll to support my children and be able to watch them grow.
My creative side was still calling to me, so I started making hand drawn earrings in the evenings for a bit of fun and for presents for friends and family.
Then I discovered acrylic and never looked back, after releasing my first collection on Etsy I knew it was what I wanted to do full time now that my children are a little older.
So here I am, this is me and welcome to Oh So Flamingo
