MEET THE ARTISTS
Focusing primarily on portraiture and fantasy art, Rachel uses rich color and expressive strokes to build her images. Pastel, acrylic, watercolors, and inks all find their way into her work, as she chooses and mixes mediums to maximum effect. Creating artwork is an endless process of experimentation, revising, and refining to ensure the final piece is just right.
A rural girl at heart, Rachel was raised in Ohio farm country with her two sisters. Encouraged to pursue her artistic talents, she graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA in Illustration.
In addition to showing her work on the road at Renaissance and Fantasy Festivals, Rachel is the owner of Betwixt Studios, an art gallery and supply shop in York, SC that offers studio space for artists, local artwork, classes, and art supplies. She and her husband are besotted with their four cats, who rule the house with iron paws. Rachel Ohls continues to create and is available for commissions and consultations.
Fairies, dragons, mermaids, unicorns, castles, and many other fantasy images populate Delight's magical fantasy universe! Despite not having much encouragement in her art at a young age, Delight's passion for creating won out and she has been painting for over 65 years. Aside from high school and a few college art courses, she is primarily self-taught and creates most of her images from her powerful imagination.
You may have seen her work from the many many art shows that Delight did when she lived in California, or the Renaissance Festivals that she did throughout the United States before she transitioned to working in her home studio. Delight has also been featured on Doreen Virtue's Hay House Oracle cards, particularly her mermaid and second fairy deck. She has also done several international art posters as well as worked for Leanin' Tree greeting cards. Delight has been a professional fantasy artist for 43 years. When not dispensing pearls of wisdom to her mentees, she draws and paints out of her home studio with the questionable assistance of her two adoring chihuahuas and two feline companions.
