About

Rachel Wada - About Me - Hello.jpg

My name is Rachel and I am a Vancouver based freelance illustrator.

I was born in Japan to a Japanese mom and a Hong Kongese dad who met in Canada. Through my artistic practice, I try to to put my own spin on traditional techniques and motifs inspired by my mixed cultural background.

My projects range from book covers to editorial illustration, printmaking and more.  My works have been recognized by the Society of Illustrators New York and 3x3 Magazine, and have collaborated with a wide range of clients.

If there is a project that you would like to collaborate on, please get in touch!
