Born in Akron, Ohio in 1987, Rachel moved to and was raised in St. Louis, Missouri. Throughout her childhood, she had a passion for creating and truly fell in love with art. She was always watching and studying the world around her while recording it in illustrations and doodles on any paper she could get her hands on. In 2010, she moved to San Francisco to study Visual Development at the Academy of Art University. While there, she also developed a love for illustrating children’s books as well.
