Rachel Sierra – Designer

Fine artist turned illustrator. Using a blend of paint + graphics to design books. Confession: I buy books by their covers!

Overview

Hola, I’m Rachel!


I grew up moving all over the Caribbean and Central America, and travel has been a central part of my life.


As a professional watercolor and acrylic artist, and multidisciplinary creative, when I'm not painting or designing in my studio, you'll find me at the beach surfing. I have a small family, and am a new mom. I am driven to document life in anyway - whether that’s by painting, taking film photos, or designing gorgeous book illustrations!


I have a wide scope of styles to choose from - ranging from a fine art aesthetic, minimalist designs, to hand drawn sketches.


I really believe in the importance of art to capture the essence of your work. I hope to create beautiful and meaningful works that bring your written world to life!


I can't wait to create together.

Finding a cover artist that captures your vision for the book cover isn't always easy, but I am glad to say Rachel was the best book cover designer I've ever worked with. Compared to my previous experiences Rachel listened intently to my ideas for the book cover, and immediately grasped the essence of the story I wanted to portray.

In addition to my cover design, Rachel also helped me with the interior aspect of my book. Headers/footers placement and page numbers can be tricky on a manuscript on google docs/word. She executed with ease and saved me so much time! Thank you, Rachel!
