Hello! I'm Rachael and I'm a British children's book illustrator living on the coast near Liverpool. I like to create rich and vivid scenes and portray engaging characters throughout my work. You'll often find foliage and plants incorporated into my pieces, as I am most inspired by nature. When I'm not making art I love to cook, play piano, read, travel and visit the beautiful national trust and beach on my doorstep.

My work is either painted traditionally with gouache or drawn digitally, and I am currently enjoying working on middle grade fiction and picture books.
