Alleyne's delicate veiling of large cutting expanses of rich seductive colour create paintings that allow the viewer a moment of contemplative reflection. Following in the footsteps of some of the great artists in history, including, Stanley Spencer, Paul Nash, Ben Nicholson, Uan Uglow, Paula Rego, William Coldstream, and Rachel Whiteread, Alleyne trained at the Slade School of Fine Art from 1992 - 1998. Rachel Alleyne has won many awards, including, The 'Dolbey Travel Scholarship', which enabled her to travel and exhibit in Barbados, where she produced some of her finest seascape paintings. Her most notorious show to date, 'In Turner's Footsteps', was held at the Tate Britain Gallery, London, and celebrated the work of her contemporaries, and acknowledged the legacy of William Turner. Rachel Alleyne's work is in private collections across the UK and abroad.
