My name is Rachel, an artist with many an interest. My professional career started with my belief that animation is magic. Broken down into its base technical components, it is individual still frames whizzing by our eyes at 29.97 frames per second. The only true motion is that which our brain tricks us into believing there is by interpolating the change from one still frame to the next. And in those frames, whole new worlds are created. How is that not magic?
And then came photography, the ability to capture and freeze a moment in time, finding magic in the reality of a single second, rather than drawing it out pixel by pixel, frame by frame, from deep inside my computer. But I love both worlds, I really do, and so I use them both, drawing inspiration from one to inform the other.
2D, 3D, 2.5D (yes, it exists, and I can explain how if you wish,) I have worked in all of these digital realms, and each has their own specific strength and advantage. It all depends on what you are trying to convey.
My work has been seen on Discovery, Nat Geo, the History Channel, DIY, Animal Planet, amongst other myriad local channels and of course, YouTube.
If you are interested in my services, please drop me a line, and let’s work together.
