Rachael Nerney is an artist and illustrator who loves, admires and captures the small details in life. Sliced citrus destined for cocktails. Fresh herbs from the garden. An abundance of tomatoes in the heat of summer. Rachael captures the fleeting moments and memories we share with food through vibrant color, light and pattern. She hopes to spread joy to people, businesses and communities with her whimsical illustrations. Rachael earned her BFA in Illustration from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2013.
Her passion for illustrating food grew after graduation. For four years, she was creating artwork for Whole Foods Market in the Boston area. She now works from her home studio in Charleston, SC. She finds inspiration from local farmers markets, restaurants, and most of all - her kitchen. Rachael’s exhibit Two Top at Miller Gallery was nominated Best Art Exhibit of 2019 by the Charleston City Paper. Her work hangs in the Charleston Wine and Food office and in numerous private collections.
