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 creative interests lie in illustration, graphic design, photography, videography, and animation. I also enjoy spending time in nature, cuddling with my cat Nova, bullet journaling, biking, and making art in my free time.
I graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design from UMNTC in May of 2019. My design skills strengthened and my mind sharpened over four years surrounded by designers and artists with similar interests; and I will forever be grateful for the talented network, valuable knowledge, and strong body of work my college experience gave me.
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. Outside of portraits, I also have experience photographing automobiles/motorcycles, products, and even a bit of real estate.
ART + ILLUSTRATION
My passion for art, especially illustration, has grown throughout my lifetime, and I am constantly practicing and studying lighting and anatomy to improve my accuracy and technique. I love learning new mediums and incorporating art and illustration into my design work.
VIDEOGRAPHY + ANIMATION
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 year.
If you are interested in working with me, or would just like to chat, please don't hesitate to contact me! :-)
