Hi there, my name is Rachel.
I’ve been drawing and painting ever since I could hold a pencil. I now specialize in watercolor and acrylic paintings. I’m a Portland native who has been drawn to birds my whole life. My favorite things to paint are birds (of course) and plants, although I do take commissions and really enjoy doing pet portraits.
Please take a look at my social media to see what I’m currently working on. My Instagram has a lot of great images you’ll love.
Do you have a companion animal you’d like to honor with a portrait?
Feel free to email me if you have a commission request!
PersonalI’ve been a huge fan of Jenna Marbles and Julien Solomita for years. Since I’ve always loved cooking, I was really intrigued to see what they cook and eat at home and out at restaurants, so I decided to start trying out some vegan recipes. I loved it! I also saw it as an opportunity to eat better and make it harder on myself to just eat junk food at any restaurant I wanted.
I then researched more about veganism and learned about all the impact it makes for the environment and the animals. By the start of 2018, I was eating mostly all plant-based, and by June 2018 I was 100% vegan.
At this point veganism is my lifestyle and it is ingrained in me, my transition and journey has been so easy (thankfully) and I feel like it has made my creativity in the kitchen even stronger. Ask me to convert any omni recipe into vegan and I can do it in my sleep! I also love sharing recommendations and helping others transition to veganism, my inbox is always open!
