Elevate Your Every Day
Hi there, I'm Rachel Lyle! I'm a Central Illinois based illustrator with a special interest in the concept of functional art as a vehicle for sustainability. You won't find any single use items or fast fashion here. My preferred medium is the humble porcelain coffee mug. They're original works of art that just happen to be dishwasher safe. Regardless of the canvas, though, my aim is to elevate your everyday by creating beautiful illustrations and patterns that can be enjoyed for years to come. Have art for breakfast as you sip your morning coffee with a custom portrait mug, and snuggle up with a cozy warm blanket donned with intricately detailed vintage carousels. Speaking of blankets, all blankets in this shop can be purchased in a wide range of sizes, from sweet swaddle size to an ample 60 x 80 inches. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at hello@rachmariestudio. I'm always happy to help. Have a beautiful day!
First- let’s talk communication. I reached out to the shop simply asking for an expected shipping date. They got back to me super fast, so kind and follow up with 2 or 3 other messages letting me know what was happening with shipping . It just arrived and it’s SO cute I’m going back and getting one for myself. :) it’s so hard to find anything sickle cell anemia related and this was perfect!
Ordered this as a gift for my mother-in-law. Rachel made sure I loved the custom dog portrait. She went above and beyond to make sure it was perfect! When one of my neighbors got my package and didn't return it to me, Rachel did everything she could to make the situation right and was SO kind and understanding through the entire process. I highly recommend her for all of your custom portrait needs!!
I am a "Rookie" at the hand crafted process. Not only did Rachel make a one-of-a-kind present, she was incredibly thoughtful, patient and kind - an absolute DREAM artisan!
I cannot overstate the quality of this mug!! The immense love and care that went into the artwork is obvious and I honestly teared up when I unboxed it. (I’m a crazy cat mom and have always wanted something with both of my fur babies on it!) Rachel nailed every detail down to the eye color and each little fur splotch. She also went the extra mile to create a fun background pattern so I could incorporate all of their insane nicknames. 🤣 This is not only my new favorite mug, but a treasured keepsake that I’ll hold close long after my kitties are gone. 💕 I will definitely be ordering again!
The mugs are original and funny. This seller always has new ideas. These aren't the same old holiday tropes. The mug quality is great but the artwork really holds up as well. I have several of her mugs and not one is less than perfect.
