Nice to meet you!
My name is Rachel Wada and I am a freelance illustrator & designer based in Vancouver, BC.
My identity as Japanese-Cantonese, as an immigrant, and as a woman, all informs my art. Through my artistic practice, I try to to put my own spin on traditional techniques and motifs inspired by my mixed cultural background.
I create illustrations anywhere illustrations are needed - from publishing, books, magazines, online media, children’s books and more! I also have a soft spot for silkscreen printing, which combines my love of print and paper.
I am currently available for freelance projects!
