about rachel


Rachel Corcoran is a freelance illustrator and designer from Dublin, Ireland. In a previous life, Rachel was an art historian and archaeologist, and her love and knowledge of long-forgotten worlds is captured within her work. Her style has been described as “a mix of pretty with a healthy dash of wit.” Using digital mediums in a traditional manner has helped her to establish a characteristic style that is influenced by her fondness for sketchy colouring pencils and paint.

Rachel is happy to work on a variety of illustration projects; including children’s/YA book illustration, editorial illustration, fashion, food, and book cover illustrations. Please send an email if you would like to commission Rachel for an upcoming project.

Member of Illustrators Ireland and The Association of Illustrators.
