Hello! My name is Rachel Mulhall and I am 21 years old. Up until now I haven't quite educated myself on how Ello works, although I thought it might be cool to introduce myself during these submissions and apply at the same time. I am a student living in Waterloo, Ontario CA working towards my degree in graphic design, though fine art has always been my number one growing up. I can never put the paintbrush down (except earning a degree is my excuse as to why I have not allowed myself near as much time to continue painting as I please). I usually work with oils and my style ranges from abstract realism (in other words messy realistic) to abstract contour portraiture. I hope to continue my passion by generating more artwork as I grow with a goal to sell a piece by the end of 2019 (baby steps). For now most of my word remains within the walls of my bedroom.
Photography soon became another love of mine after exploring the digital and film world. I try to save most of my photography to my free time where I can purse personal projects and follow my creative intuitions. The pieces I have included are two images from two personal photo sessions with some friends over the summer and an oil painting done in July of this year on unstretched canvas.
Thank you @ello and I look forward to connecting with many of you over this network in the years to come ✨
