About the Artist

   I have always been an artist. I have always been creative. I have always been a cosplayer. But most importantly, I have always been a dinosaur. My mom will tell you that I used to run around department stores snarling at customers and pretending I had a tail. We laugh about that now, but nothing has really changed.

    I'm just much better at it now. 

   I founded Simply Rachael a few years ago as a way to share my art with the world, but it was very hard to get my feet off the ground. It wasn't until March of 2019 that I finally found my way. I went all in. I quit my day job. I invested absolutely everything I had into my current project, a big blue dragon named Stormfly. And there was no turning back.

    She may not be a dinosaur, but for every day I get to pursue my passion, bring new creatures to life, and of course, run around with a giant tail, I can honestly say I am living the dream.
