Announcement    From custom pet portrait candles and uber-cute bandanas to adorable intricately illustrated holiday items, everything in this shop is thoughtfully crafted for people that love their pets like family and want to intentionally make space for color and joy in their lives.

I also offer a small limited line of science inspired mugs and other gifts which make excellent gifts for the scientists, teachers, and medical professionals in your life. These were created out of a desire to gift something colorful and unique to the scientists in my own life. At the time, the only thing my search revealed was standard cliché text mugs, and the options for colorful gifts that also displayed a true knowledge of the subject matter were limited at best. Realizing this, I decided to create the thoughtful scientific gifts I felt like scientists and healthcare providers would truly love and enjoy for years.

All designs are either hand painted or digitally illustrated by myself, a self taught mixed media artist, biologist's wife, and pet mom to 3 dogs and a cat, all rescues. I adore getting to know my customers and creating designs that make people feel seen and valued.

About RachMarieStudio

On Etsy since 2019

Hi There! I'm Rachel.

The midwestern, theatre grad, pet obsessed, animal loving, biologist's wife based in Champaign, Illinois. I put my whole heart into every piece I create, and I adore getting to know my customers and hearing their stories. Above all else, my goal is to always make people feel seen and valued with every interaction and every piece created.

While creativity has been a lifetime constant for me, the true start of this little venture came about when I was searching for a truly unique Christmas gift for my husband when we were still dating. At that time, we had two dogs and a cat (Millie came into our lives soon after soon after ♥), and neither one of us were very excited to get in front of a camera. Combine that with the near impossibility of getting all the fur kids in one frame with us (unless you are a miracle worker, in which case I salute you!), I knew that our best chance at a great family photo would have to be turning to illustration rather than photography. I was lucky enough to be able to commission our friend's son to create a truly stunning portrait for us, but It didn't take long after that for curiosity to take over; I wanted to be able to give other people this feeling, and let them have the truly unique experience of custom art.

Once I had the idea in my head, I was off to the races. It took months and months of practice to truly feel like I was accomplishing what I had set out to, and before I knew it I began offering the service to friends and family, and then opening up for commissions. After that, I branched out into other mediums, styles, and began incorporating fun gifts and mugs independent of portrait work.

All this to say, I have a ton of fun creating every piece that I'm lucky enough to create, but my big 'Why' is that through Rach Marie Studio I get to support my little family while providing totally unique gifts that create moments of true authentic connection for people in a world of disconnect. ♥

Frequently asked questions
I have an unusual pet. Can I still get a custom portait?

Absolutely! One of my goals is to paint or illustrate every type of animal/pet there is. Whether your best friend is a pig, a hamster, a parrot, goldfish, iguana, horse, ostrich, or any other creature in the animal kingdom, I can't wait to work on your unique portrait!

Can you include my pet's paw print?

Yes, absolutely. If you send in a high quality scan or photo of your pet's paw print, I would love to include the print with your pet's portrait. There is never an extra charge for this. ❤

I ordered a custom piece from you a while ago, but I broke/lost it. Can you help?

These things happen! My policy is to hold on to clients' final files for one year. If it has been more than an year since you ordered your piece, there is still a good chance I'll have your files, but I can't make guarantees. Please message me and I'll be happy to assist you with ordering a replacement. All I'll ever charge is the cost of printing and shipping. ❤

What Can I Expect When I Order a Custom or Personalized Item?

1. After placing your order, I'll ask you for 1-3 quality photos of your portrait subject on the next business day. Feel free to send photos early if you're excited!

2. After photos are received, I'll get to work on your custom piece! This can take 1-2 weeks. If your piece is time sensitive, please message me. I will always work with your timeline if it is physically possible.

3. When initial art is finished, I will send you a proof & ask for any revisions or edits you'd like. We can tweak as many times as necessary until you love it!

4. Once you're totally satisfied, I'll submit your approved files for production.

5. You'll receive a tracking # as soon as it ships, and your piece will arrive safely packed & ready to gift. Thank you! ♥

Gift wrapping and packaging

While I don't offer paper gift wrapping, each item from Rach Marie Studio is treated like a gift, free of charge. Prices are never listed on the packing slip, and each mug and candle is placed in a cellophane bag, tied with ribbon, and placed in a white gift box. Even small items like bandanas will arrive in a cute cellophane bag and sealed with a sticker!

If you would like a personalized gift message included with your order, please let me know, and I will be happy to include it. There is no extra charge for adding a gift message. ♥
