Rachel Awes Art { I Heart Art }

Today I would like to introduce you to Rachel Awes from St. Paul, Minnesota. Rachel's favorite color is green and markers her favorite medium. Her work caught my eye immediately with it's beautiful colors and unique illustrations.

When did you first begin creating and selling your work?
roughly 5 years ago. i was inspired by the beautiful things clients in my psychology practice were saying + began creating artwork + writing in response.

What is your favorite/most sentimental creation you have made? Why?

the world waits. colorful rainbow print. by rachel awes.

this was an early piece for me + yet it captures what message i most want to send out to the world + also send into my own heart + belly. 

is there a project you’ve always dreamed of creating?
my book “all i did was listen”, published last year, feels like that to me.
it is the fullest love letter i can imagine myself offering to the world (although there are more books coming!). 

THE BOOK "all i did was listen" by rachel awes.
