Hi my name is Rachel and I am currently in my senior year as a graphic design student at Bradley University. I am also minoring in social media marketing and management and leadership. As my college career starts to come to a close, I am starting to reflecting on my work and how much I have grown as an artist. ​ While on campus, I am involved in Best Buddies where I make friends with people from the community who have intellectual or developmental disabilities. I was also the Vice President of Event Planning for my sorority, Pi Beta Phi, where I got to plan parents weekends and formals. ​ In my free time I like to watch Netflix, my current binge is Criminal Minds. I am also a huge hockey fan. Being from the Chicago suburbs, the Blackhawks have a special place in my heart! I’d love to talk to you more about my art and passions!

Artist Statement

As a child, I loved to make crafts. Without realizing it at the time, I paid attention to how various materials left different textures behind. Today, in my pieces, I appreciate how adding a simple texture can completely change it.

Once a texture is combined with the perfect typeface and color palette, everything comes together. Although I love seeing my final pieces, it is even more enjoyable to look back at the sketches I started with to see the transformation of the piece over time.
