Racheal, proprietor of RachealAnilyse has always loved art -- drawing, photography, doodling, making cards, scrapbooking, etc. since she was little. "I made my first pop up book in 6th grade. It was about a mouse. It never survived our basement flood unfortuantely," she says, ruefully. She began school thinking she would be a teacher, but an intense art history course convinced her that she was surpressing myself, leading to a shift to art school and an art degree.
Racheal is inspired by some very famous people: Gustov Klimt, Aubrey Beardsley, Norman Rockwell, Alphonse Mucha, DaVinci, Raphael, Edward Dulac, and Arthur Rackham, as well as by what surrounds her -- family, nature, and life's chance encounters. Learn more about Racheal Anilyse on her blog.
