Hello! I’m Rachael and I’m a British children’s book illustrator living in a seaside village just North of Liverpool. My work is traditionally and digitally painted, and often portrays rich imagery and diverse and engaging characters. I love to illustrate natural scenery as I am very moved by beautiful landscapes, and I enjoy finding inspiration when visiting my local national trust, beach and the glorious Lake District. When I'm not illustrating, I like to wind down by playing the piano, cooking delicious tofu dishes and reading a good book!
I am currently enjoying working on middle grade fiction and picture books, and my most recent achievement is becoming Dame Jacqueline Wilson's new illustrator. I have had the incredible honour of working with her on her fantastic new book The Primrose Railway Children which is now out in the world for everyone to see!
