Specialising in pencil based portrait sketches: Meet emerging illustrator, Rachel W L Chan

Specialising in pencil based portrait sketches, Rachel W L Chan is a 24-year-old London based emerging illustrator. She challenges herself by capturing the finer details of human characteristics, from the fine flicks of the eyelashes to the distant smile lines in her artwork.

Rachel was born in Macau, China and grew up in Northampton, UK. She comes from a thoroughly creative and supportive family that has always been encouraging her to express her creativity.

Rachel graduated with a BA Hons Fashion Design degree at Birmingham City University in 2015. From there she went on to work for London Uniform and Couture, NO Uniform and Nicholas Oakwell Couture as an illustrator and designer. Alongside her full-time job, she works remotely for Lexx Moda as a graphic designer and art director.

Inspired by current cultures, art and music Rachel plans to turn her portrait art hobby into her dream job.
