Born in New York City in 1990, Raquel Serafino was always drawn to nature and serenity.
Surrounded by dogs, cats and a flock of fluffy golden chickens who live in a quirky pink coop - Raquel draws inspiration from the beauty of her new home: rural North Carolina.
She began painting at the age of 25, watching youtube tutorials, teaching herself different techniques and using art to disrupt the monotony of day-to-day life.
Raquel has continued to develop her artistic abilities - creating commissioned pieces, hosting local exhibits and displaying her work in galleries. From oil portraits and acrylic landscapses to gouache paintings and collages, Raquel's artwork captures a wide range of subjects in a diverse, lively style.
When she's not painting you might find her outside, ejoying the sunshine with her chickens.
