Hello! I'm Rachael, a Children's Book Illustrator based on the coast of Liverpool in the UK. After graduating from Liverpool John Moore's University in 2017, I ventured into the wonderful world of Children's books, where I am now UK and US represented by Charlie Bowden at Pickled Ink Agency.


I find inspiration for my work when surrounded by beautiful nature, which urges me to travel and explore different countries and scenic places whenever I can. My work often displays vibrant and rich colour palettes, which are traditionally painted with gouache, followed by digital editing. My other creative outlets include cooking, playing the piano, and taking photos of anything with a gorgeous colour palette wherever I go.
