Welcome to Crafty Marten!
My name is Rachel and I grew up on the West coast of Scotland, near Glasgow. A couple of my favourite things (apart from art stuff) are cute birds, spooky abandoned buildings, and little plants. I now work as an artist and illustrator. I have an MSci degree in Zoology and love being outside so many of my art themes are to do with animals and nature.
I've always loved comics and started writing my first, an anthropomorphic kid's horror comic called Terrifying Tails, in 2017 and loved the process. In 2018 I started writing my first long form comic, Lycan, an LGBT+ mystery drama werewolf webcomic which is still ongoing.
I go to a lot of comic conventions in Scotland and around the rest of the UK so don't be shy to come and talk if you see me at one.
Hope to see you there!
