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 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.
"I hired Rachel for a small project for a big client. I needed my small team of artists to knock it out of the park, and Rachel absolutely did. She communicated well, consistently, and on time. She took feedback, asked great questions, and delivered on time every week. The client was nothing short of blown away by her work and loved working with her. I will try to hire Rachel again for whatever opportunity comes next, you should too."
