Empowering fantasy art for book covers & anywhere magical stories are found...
Rachel Perciphone is an artist and professional illustrator creating empowering fantasy art that encourages the viewer to confidently explore their own stories. She is most heavily inspired by mythology, fairy-tales, nature, music, and ethereal subjects and her work features strong, diverse characters within magical and colorful worlds. The foundation of her work begins with a detailed pencil drawing and she uses a mix of digital and traditional media to paint the finished piece. Rachel uses symbolism, shape, and both natural and supernatural elements to explore narratives and emotions. Through depictions of vibrant, feminine, and engaging subjects, her work showcases the idea that our inner strength is both multifaceted and beautiful.
If you need an illustration that captures the essence of your story, I've got you covered! 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 project, along with budget and timeline details.
"Rachel came to us via a referral from a friend and while we didn't have any immediate projects, we decided to create some just so we could work with her! Her artwork and style were perfect for creating episode artwork for our podcast, Grimm Grimmer Grimmest, and she created a magical world that piqued the interest of our kid listeners. We didn't hesitate to work with her on four additional projects - and of course, she knocked each one out of the park.
Rachel is a dream to work with and we can't wait to come up with new projects just so we can work with her again!"
