Custom Colored

Pencil Portraits

I create thoughtfully customized colored pencil portraits that capture & illuminate expressions of
self-love, awareness, and discovery.

About My Illustration Practice

An art commission can signify an important milestone in life: a celebration, a commitment to a loved one, a family archive, a memorial, a gesture of self-love, and a legacy.
We must ask ourselves, how do we want to experience and remember these sacred moments of our lives? Are the cell phone and social media images enough, or is there a more powerful way we can bring our memories, loved ones, and passions into our life?
Become a curator both in life and art! Work with me and let's co-create a more creative way of connecting to and preserving what matters the most.

First, submit a request for a commission here.


I will respond to you within 24 hours requesting 1-3 photos and providing a short questionnaire that will help me to design customize your artwork.


Once I have received your materials I will send a final quote for your art commission.


Upon payment of the deposit (50% of the total cost) I will begin working on your artwork.


Timeframes vary from 2 weeks to 2 months depending on the size and complexity of the work.


My pricing is reasonable and competitive in comparison to the traditional art world. 

By asking for a fair wage that is free of the subjective pricing techniques and scams of the art world, I can provide a portrait that fits in a wide range of budgets.

These prices only provide an example of fees and may be adjusted with additional requests.


My heart is in this work. I create art because I care, and I promise to provide you with the best customer service and technique possible


An art commission is an exercise in trust. Due to my stylized aesthetic, the final product is a mystery before it's arrival. I am committed to this creative leap and promise that I will have a beautiful product for you.


High-quality materials ensure many lifetimes of enjoyment:

These artworks are 100% Prismacolor colored pencil on archival illustration board. 

Each artwork will receive a protective coating to further protect its vibrancy and strength.

 Rachel is very clear, concise, warm, and accommodating. I got so much more than I could have asked for from my portrait. It is always with me, whether on my altar to remind me of my potential and capabilities, or a guidance card tucked into my journal for a reminder of my groundedness.
