Rachel Wyndham Wincott

Rachel started her career in the arts after achieving her BA in Performing Arts at Middlesex University. She worked as an artist and actor for the first 10 years of her career. In the 1990s Rachel pioneered the arts initiative Creative Block, a charity funded by the London Arts Board and the Arts Council. The project was housed in spectacular unused offices buildings in the City and West End at the time with the full co-operation of the owners who benefitted from the rates relief. The group built white and black cubes in which to present arts and theatre shows and installations.

Rachel served on the board of Clean Break Theatre Company for 10 years and held the chair for the 3 years during which the major lottery funding was won and spent. She has also worked with the board of the Estorick Foundation. In 1994 Rachel had a change of direction and re-trained as an accountant. She has worked in one of the top 5 accountancy firms as well as a number of small private practices. She set up her own private practice in 2009 which has grown steadily from personal recommendation. She now looks after 200 clients and has a team of 8 staff. The firm earned a Financial Times business award, and the Small Accounting Firm of the Year from Finance Monthly in 2021. The practice focuses on creative clients looking after artists, art galleries, designers and architects and is fast becoming one of the prominent accountants for artists in London.
