Hey! I’m Rachel. I’m an artist who lives in beautiful Northern California with my awesome kids, amazing husband, and super cute dog Sammy.
I love to create! Making Something Rad is where I share my creative life – art, sewing, leggings, yoga, and all the other cool stuff I do! I keep myself pretty busy.
I’ve been sewing for about 10 years and I make most of my own clothes. I learned to sew professionally by apprenticing to a bespoke clothing business. I occasionally make commissioned garments, but mostly I like to sew for myself and my family. Mostly myself! 🙂
I’ve always been an artist, and I create a big variety of work. I like doing traditional artwork, which ranges from detailed line drawings to loose, expressive watercolor paintings. I like to learn new techniques, so I work in many styles. I also love digital illustration in both Photoshop and Illustrator.
I’m also a professional designer. I do UI/UX, graphic design, branding, digital illustration, and I also design and sell my own printed leggings at SparklePriestess.com!
