Illustrator, Baker and Picture Book Maker. Growing up as a child in the North of England, Rachel, immersed herself in all things baking and art. At age 12 she started working in the local bakery and by 15 she was spending her weekends creating wedding cakes for local brides.
A true creative from a young age, she went on to complete a bachelors degree in Illustration and Animation at Manchester School of Art.
“My love for baking and illustration came hand in hand. Every new project, in either the kitchen or studio was a blank canvas. A chance to create something new and exciting,” says Rachel.
It was during her time at art school Rachel started her own small cake business to support her study, specialising in cupcakes, celebration and multi-tiered wedding cakes.
Rachel was diagnosed with dyslexia at age 16 and went on to complete her final year at art school focusing on children’s illustrations and learning styles, creating a children’s book that targeted visual, tactile, auditory and kinaesthetic elements.
“My passion for children's illustration came with the difficulties I faced when growing up. I wanted all my work, not just my children's illustrations, to tell a story, a story that everyone can understand and learn from, one way or another.”
Rachel moved across the seas to Sydney in late 2016 and landed a job working at a design school in the marketing team. It was here where she learnt how to build a brand and a loyal community who share similar interests and passions.
“Living and working in Australia wasn’t anything I ever planned, it just happened and I fell in love with the country. I was always a true home bird so being here 5 years on and having launched a business is nothing I ever expected.”
Rachel and Eilish met back in 2018 but it wasn’t until early 2020 that their lives and visions began to align. Having experienced the world on two very different paths, together their knowledge and experiences saw them creating and building a brand that would continue to educate and inspire those around them.
“I wanted to be a part of the change, the education and the challenges that came within the food industry. I’ve always aspired to tell stories and educate through my work. Whether that be in the ingredients I use in my baking, or in the branding and marketing of the business. The What if Society is my biggest story and favourite challenge yet.”
