Rachel is Rotterdam-based and is from Barcelona, Spain. She’s also the founder of the website you are looking at right now, rotterdamillustrators.nl
Rachel is deeply curious about people: why do they do what they do, and how do they behave in specific situations? She works her observations and insights into her illustrations, often with affectionate humour to engage with her audience.
