Hi, I'm Rachel Swartz. Thanks for stopping by. I studied studio art at Bob Jones University and currently reside in Knoxville, Tennessee.
There is so much beauty in the world around us when we're paying attention, whether that be a mischievous look from a little one we love, a lined and wrinkled face full of wisdom and character, or a simple wildflower discovered on an evening walk. I seek to capture just a glimpse of that beauty in my work. What I love most about drawing portraits is capturing the beauty, soul and personality of the subject, inspired by the love of the person commissioning the portrait. More than just drawing the lines and shadows of a face, I love to tell a story about this loved one. So check out my work, leave feedback, check back for specials, and, well...hire me!
