Hello! My name is Rachael, and I am a freelance illustrator living on the coast of Liverpool in the UK. I have been working in the Children's Book industry since early 2019, and I am UK and US represented by Charlie Bowden at Pickled Ink Agency.


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