Rachel is an illustrator and designer born in France, where she studied visual communication and illustration before relocating to Australia: first Hobart, then Brisbane. She has illustrated several picture books, works with businesses and non-profits, and collaborates with design studios on all sorts of commercial and cultural projects. In her spare time she has created two picture books that explore the monsters of the Tasmanian’s landscapes. (The Monsters of Tasmania, 2014 and The Journey of Admiral Bolognaise 2016). She’s currently working on the third instalment of the series. Rachel’s passion for illustration has taken her to far away places – She performed as a visual artist in award winning children’s theatre show “You and Me and the Space Between” in China, Japan and the USA. She has mentored budding illustrators in the Adobe Mentorship Program, served as state councillor in the Australian Graphic Design Association and co-directed boutique graphic festivals.
