Rachel Rieckenberg grew up in a tiny farm town in Southern Illinois surrounded by her families misfit farm and huge backyard forest. It was there her imagination and love of fairy tales blossomed.

She left home to attend school for Special Effects Makeup shortly after leaving High School. She traveled around working in Film for almost a decade until settling in Georgia, trading in makeup brushes for paintbrushes. 

Rachel is now a Traditional Mixed Media Artist focusing on Pyrography, Watercolor, and Oils.  Just like her choice in mediums, her work is a blend of cute vs creepy and fantasy vs realism.

When she isn't working, you can find her spending time with her boyfriend Kevin and puppy Devi, playing Skyrim, or vegging out with a good book.
