Rachel Feirman is a digital and traditional freelance artist located in Upstate NY. She finds inspiration most often from the beauty and vibrancy found in her natural surroundings. Rachel hopes that her twists on the many aspects of our environment help to bring a newfound appreciation to your life.

Her various outlets of creativity include making digitally illustrated artworks, acrylic paintings, and linocut carvings. Currently, she enjoys digital art the most due to the accessibility of creating on the go and using the endless tools available to her. Rachel draws on her wide range of experience for her work in logo design, book illustration, public art, surface design, and more. She currently works side-by-side with her partner Zachary and their dog Frankie from her home studio.

Since Rachel was brought into this world, she has been searching for different outlets to fulfill her creative expression. Raised by two creatives in Upstate NY, she was given many opportunities to explore that side of herself. Going on nature hikes and spending time in the garden with her parents were staples of her childhood. The irony here is that little Rachel was not a fan of going on long nature hikes—or nature anything. Instead, she much preferred spending hours inside working on various projects such as lampworking, jewelry-making, painting, ceramics, and cooking. Suffice to say, she grew to feel at home in many outdoor settings and feels that her fascination with nature as an artistic subject has only deepened her love for our ecosystem.

At the age of sixteen, she delved into circus arts and trained to be a circus educator. The creative outlets that she once had were pushed to the backseat for the next five years as her energy was being used elsewhere. After being laid off due to the pandemic, she found herself with much more time and nowhere to channel her creativity. This is when she quickly rediscovered her love for drawing and painting. All of that has led her to who she is now—a full-time freelance artist!
