R Karch Photography

Rachel is a former social-studies teacher who is passionate about her subject. After work hours, Rachel is an artist. She has been drawing, painting, and making art since she can remember. Those childhood passions and curiosities grew into different art forms like sculpting, painting, photography, tattoo design, graphic design, and cosplay. Her latest artistic venture is composite photography and graphic design. Since starting photography in 2020, Rachel has been the official event photographer for four conventions in Oklahoma.

Rachel serves in many capacities in the cosplay community and does her best to help the community grow in a healthy and loving manner
