Greetings to your dear soul!
My name is Rachel Awes and there are three primary components to the work of my heart: psychologist, author and art playgroundlist. Out of a private practice in St. Paul, MN, I love traveling beside people and encouraging sight of their full beauty, and action to live it out.
I have written and illustrated two books (endorsed by SARK, Kelly Rae Roberts, Brian Andreas/Storypeople) and am excited about a third one coming in the Spring of 2016! I love words and art that bridge my heart to yours, by saying: hello, you matter, thank you, and possibility.
I made up the word "art playgroundist" because making art feels like recess to me: wind in my face, swing sets, a wide open field, and running through it with all my friends. My books and other products (art prints, cards, mugs, and more) are offered in my online etsy shop, as well as in gift and bookstores across the United States.
