Hello! I’m Rachel, a native of Austin, Texas currently based in Cambridge. After getting a BFA in design and working as a book designer moonlighting as an illustrator, I decided it was time to move across the pond to pursue my MA in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art.

I enjoy combining expressive linework, textural printmaking, and muted color palettes to create images full of moody atmosphere and gothic romanticism. My work is inspired by a lifelong love of horror films, faerie tales, a fascination with the 19th century, and whatever my current hyperfixation may be. Recent hyperfixations have included gardening, season 2 of Bridgerton, and photographing quirky door knockers around Cambridge.

I create illustrations for all sorts of projects including young adult and middle grade fiction and nonfiction, graphic novels, picture books, adult fiction, posters, products, and beyond!

I am available for both private commissions and commercial work. If you have questions or are interested in working together on a project, please get in touch by email.
