A native of Austin, Texas, Rachel holds a BFA with honors in Communication Design from Texas State University, and worked as a freelance illustrator and book designer in the US before moving across the pond to pursue her MA in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art.
Much of her work is inspired by a lifelong love of horror films and faerie tales, coupled with a fascination—bordering on obsession—with the 19th century. She enjoys illustrating middle grade, young adult, and adult fiction, as well as zines, posters, and products full of moody atmosphere and dark romanticism.
Rachel can usually be found drinking coffee, trying her best at gardening, or spoiling her two cats.
Rachel is 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.
