Hi, I'm Rachel!
I moved to Chicago two and a half years ago to figure out how I can become a full-time art director/ part- time street artist. In all of my projects I created handmade illustrations, lettering, promotional pieces, etc to communicate my ideas as authentically as I can. Until I started portfolio school my creative process lived outside of computer software and I want to keep those creative muscles at work. Here are a few other things about me:
I get my artistic skills from my dad (he makes chainsaw art)
Best impulsive purchase: a ball python, I named him Monty
My painting professor in my undergrad described me as “fearless with experimenting”. Shortly after he banned me from mixing fire and with aersol paint
I’ve had a lot of side hustles over the years, but my favorite was working as an airbrush artist
My most cherished memory is when I went free diving with sharks
If you want to know anything else, I love grabbing coffee.
