Hi! I’m Rachel Reynolds, a painter and illustrator based in Chicago. I create custom artwork that shows off the energy and personality of your fluffy friends, loved ones, and cherished spaces. In addition to custom pieces, I also make fun prints and products (like mugs), to add art to your everyday life. I believe that art shouldn’t be inaccessible – I want to make sure that everyone can get their hands on beautiful pieces that make them smile.
I’ve been creating all my life, but my real art journey started when I realized that my career as a professional designer and brand manager wasn’t the perfect fit for me. I wanted to travel, capture joy, and connect with new people and places. I went solo traveling for a year, where I met plenty of people that shared my vision and inspired me to share what I love.
I started painting full time with a focus on bringing happiness to those around me. There’s just nothing better than hearing how much my clients love their commissions! The more unique the better – some of my favorite projects have been things like hand-painting champagne bottles and designing in-home murals. If you’ve got an idea for a custom piece, I’d love to hear from you!
Along the way, I’ve made sure to capture moments of my daily joys. I share plenty of my process and behind-the-scenes on my Instagram, and I also make prints and products of my original pieces for you to have in your home. My most cherished are paintings of Wrigley Field (just around the corner from where I live with my fiancé and our dog, Leo), and of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one of my personal heroes.
Thanks for stopping by!
