WHO IS SHE?!
I'm Rachel, but most of my friends call me Szopa (the S is silent, but I definitely am not.) I'm an illustrator currently working toward a dual master's degree in counseling and art therapy at Adler University in Chicago, Illinois.
I graduated from the University of Missouri (MIZ!) in 2018 and worked in advertising for a short time until I decided to pursue art therapy. I'm excited to use art and creativity to help people.
I started selling prints of my designs in June of 2019 and since then my world has completely changed! I love what I do and getting to create for others.
I hope to use my prints, platform, and education to make people smile and bring awareness to issues of social justice and
Making things (whether that's art or food or Spotify playlists), talking about of the many podcasts I listen to, aimlessly wandering art museums, spending as much time outdoors as possible, and exploring new cities. Not gonna lie, I also love spending too much time on the couch watching Netflix.
I dont love:
When people say less when they mean few (I have my journalism degree to thank for that one), doing the dishes,
and ... that's about it.
Make yourself at home :)
