Hello there!

My name is Rachel Perciphone and I create empowering fantasy art that encourages the viewer to confidently explore their own stories. I illustrate strong, diverse characters within magical and colorful worlds for book covers and anywhere good stories are found. I am most heavily inspired by mythology, fairytales, folklore, and fantasy. I also find a lot of inspiration in music, nature, and ethereal subjects, as well as comics and science fiction. The foundation of my work begins with a detailed pencil drawing and I use a mix of digital and traditional media to paint the finished piece. I use symbolism, shape, and supernatural elements to explore narratives, emotions, and showcase the idea that beauty and inner strength is both multifaceted and plentiful.

If you need a beautiful, professional book cover or illustration and want to see your stories and ideas visualized in a way that inspires viewers, intrigues readers, and makes you proud to display, then let's collaborate! I am available for freelance work and private commissions. Some of the work displayed in my portfolio is available for licensing. Please contact me for a quote by sending me an email with a summary of your book or project, along with budget and timeline details.

"Working with Rachel was a fun and professional experience. She has top tier talent, and worked with me to produce eye-catching illustrations for my books. I receive compliments on them all the time, which has become a point of pride for me and representing the quality of my own work beneath the cover. I would never work with anyone else."
