I find that uncovering the beauty in the abandoned invites others to reconsider their prejudices.

Hi, I'm Racheal.

I design. In the school pick-up line. While watching a show. In the bathroom. Snuggled in bed next to my husband with my screen dimmed so low that he doesn’t notice. Sorry, Garrett. When I find I’m in a funk, it’s creating that shakes me out of it.
