Rachael Mayo

Rachael Mayo is a fantasy and SF artist from Kansas City, Missouri. She earned a bachelor's degree in illustration from University of Central Missouri in 1999.


Rachael considers art her foremost hobby, and she spends most hours outside of her day job producing art. (Her day job is technical; she is a systems administrator who enjoys tormenting unsuspecting mainframes.)


Rachael prefers traditional art mediums and specializes in combination techniques that include watercolor, colored pencil, paint pens, ink, acrylic, and shiny objects. She likes to create creatures with eye-searingly bright color schemes.


Most of the artwork Rachael produces is in the form of private commissions and personal projects. She occasionally creates book covers and interior illustrations, and works primarily with small press publishers.


Rachael shows her work every year at science-fiction/fantasy convention art shows around the country.
