Hey there!

I’m Rachel Bradley. I'm an independent artist and entrepreneur, and I'm all about helping other artists in their own journeys.

I make professional reference photos that you can use in all your creative projects (yes, even commercial!) and I coach and mentor artists at all stages of their careers towards healthier, more rewarding work.

I built a business doing what I love, but it hasn't always been easy. Building a business as an artist is REALLY hard, and we often do not hear the whole story from those we look up to. It's my mission to share honestly, the ups and the downs, and to inspire and enable others to do the same by demystifying this enigmatic line of work.

Through my newsletter, you will get weekly content curated to bolster your growth from many different angles. Skill is only the beginning and other factors like mindset, business, purpose, productivity, resilience and health (to name just a few!) are all hugely important but rarely addressed. This newsletter, and this community, will serve to aid, educate and encourage you in your own journey. I'm excited to have you with us!
