Hi! My name is Rachel and I currently live in Wisconsin. I am a Playground Presentation Designer and Illustrator by day, and an art hobbyist by night!

I'm a big Pokémon fan, but I also love Yoshi, Sonic the Hedgehog, and the Final Fantasy series. I mostly draw Fan art, but I'll occasionally drift into more original art from time to time.

I'm definitely a veteran now and have been drawing for many years, but I am still learning new techniques quite often and discovering new inspiration. When in doubt, don't be afraid to experiment and try new things!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you a wonderful day!


- Never stop pushing, climbing, striving -

- You have the ability to achieve great things -

- Don't let anyone tell you otherwise -

- I believe in you -
