Hello! My name is Rachel.
I am a Graphic Designer and Illustrator based in the Twin Cities. I have a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. My artistic interests lie in illustration, graphic design, photography, videography, and animation. I also enjoy spending time in nature, cuddling with my cat, bullet journaling, biking, and drawing in my free time.
I graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design from UMNTC in May of 2019. I studied the elements and principles of design, the design thinking process, printmaking techniques, and many other aspects of graphic design that help to make a great designer.
I have practiced portrait photography for six years, both in a high-end, studio setting and freelance. I have extensive experience photographing various types of portraits, but I specialize in senior portrait and wedding photography.
My passion for illustration has grown throughout my lifetime, and I am constantly practicing and studying lighting and figures to improve my technique. I love learning new mediums and incorporating illustration into my design work.
Additionally, I have practiced wedding videography as a second shooter for dozens of events over a span of two years. I am an amateur video editor and have participated in the production of several short films as a second shooter, lighting operator, or audio operator. I have also been learning how to animate for the past six months.
I am constantly learning new things about visual art and exploring new mediums or techniques to improve my work. Along with my visual art interests, it's important to me that I'm always designing for good and creating work that aligns with my values. A dream of mine is to create beautiful design or artwork that promotes or educates about causes I feel strongly about.
If you are interested in working with me, or would just like to chat, please don't hesitate to contact me! :-)
