"I bought this for my mom as a gift after they sold our childhood home. Rachel was really easy to work with and worked within our quick timeline. She sent updates as she did her work (a sketch, then a partial, then final). She was amenable to feedback, even making a change at the last minute that I had failed to catch in an earlier draft. My parents were so happy with the final product, its perfect."
"Rachel was an absolute delight to work with. I messaged her to ask to do 2 custom watercolors for our wedding invitations. We had her paint an image of Whidbey Island, WA with a ferry in the foreground. She did the piece in layers and checked in with us to make sure it was exactly what we were hoping for. We also had her paint a map of the Island just from a quick sketch from us. She was always timely and her work was absolutely GORGEOUS! We received so many compliments about our invitations. Her price was very reasonable for the high quality work that she did. We are looking forward to working with Rachel in the future for other custom projects!!!"
"I ordered a custom painting from Rachel for my husband for Christmas. I also mentioned his birthday was coming up but that I didn't expect such a quick turnaround and was happy to receive it before the holidays. Rachel exceeded my expectations not only by creating a beautiful custom watercolor painting of a scenery of MN in an MN shape with a portrait of my husbands biggest MN deer (he is an avid hunter) - but the painting arrived the day before his birthday and I was able to give it to him! Thanks Rachel."
"Working with Rachel was a collaborative dream. I requested a very custom piece which she captured perfectly. She asked questions in the beginning to make sure she was on the right track and sent update pictures throughout the entire process. The watercolor is a gift, and the couple who received it were complete blown away. I would definitely recommend working with Rachel."
"I wanted to gift my husband something extra special for our 5 year wedding anniversary. Something original and heartfelt with tons of meaning. And, after 13 years of dating, I've pretty much done every "pinteresting" idea out there so this was not going to be easy. I later saw that a sweet friend of mine was working on new pieces for her etsy shop. I messaged her right away and she agreed with work with me on a commissioned piece. She painted the church in which we were married and the wording below represents the lyrics from our first dance song. Rachel is incredibly talented and was a doll to work with from beginning to end. She asked specific questions regarding my ideas on the final outcome and stayed in touch with me regarding her progress. I truly love how this came out and my husband was thrilled. I highly recommend!"
"This gift nearly brought my mother to tears! It was so sentimental and meant so much to her that it was meaningful and custom. The customer service was stellar they shipped directly to her and so fast! I highly recommend this shop to anyone seeking a meaningful gift."
I've had the joy to paint the following animals & insects for custom art recently: dogs, lizards, chickens, cows, dragonflies, beetles, birds, fish and deer. Each one was a unique and fun challenge full of color!
"I had a piece commissioned as a gift and I couldn't be happier. Rachel was extremely professional to work with and her vision of the piece was exactly what I was looking for. I look forward to having more artwork commissioned in the future. Thank you for an amazing painting!"
I've had the opportunity to work on several commercial projects ranging from baby blanket art, to website icons, to custom coffee mug art and corporate logos. Feel free to message me with any questions you may have concerning this service.
