Rachel Katstaller is an Illustrator from tiny tropical El Salvador.

Even though she graduated with honors as a Strategic Designer from the Escuela de Comunicación Mónica Herrera in 2013, her heart was always set on illustration, leading her to the Summer Residency in Illustration at the School of Visual Arts in New York City in the summer of 2014.

A couple of years ago, Rachel relocated to the Alps with her cat Hemingway, in order to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a children's book illustrator. Hemingway still remains skeptical about the cold weather and lack of palm trees to climb.
