I am Kasey Rainbow.

First things first: Yup - Rainbow is my real surname.
And as it suggests, I am a lady of many colours.
I draw. I write. Sometimes, I eat tacos.
But I always LiVE BRiGHT!
Drawing: Ever wondered how cool you'd look in neon? (Latest polls show it's an 11/10.) My custom drawn PERSONALiTY PORTRAiTS are a hit with small businesses, bloggers and families. My well-known style will colourfully depict your knock-out personality and showcase your unique vibe.
Writing: Grammar mightn't be my strong point but this girl can rock a rhyme. I've carried a torch for writing and poetry since discovering I could rhyme ‘you’ with ‘poo’. I've self-published two books featuring my rhythmic words (poop free) and I continue to express my love of poetry and writing by spilling my feelings onto paper or social media whenever I can.
Design: As I explored my love of digital art through my colourful portraits, it seemed only natural to take my drawing to a new level - diving headfirst into the wonderful world of fabric and textile design. Sure, I might be a newcomer to this space and completely self-taught, but I'm not too shy to toot my own horn (Toot! Toot!) about the unexpected success I've had creating wearable art for my amazing clients.
Mental Health: I've suffered from mental illness for more than 13 years - since my teenage years - so a diagnosis of PND/A soon after the birth of my daughter came as little surprise. Do I have qualms with being labelled ‘crazy’? Hell no! In fact, I'm a community champion for PANDA and a proud supporter of beyondblue. I fundraise for both charities through my book sales and creative projects, helping to shake the stigma around mental health and brighten dark days others might be going through.
And when I am not writing, drawing or designing? I'm making the most of each day with family and friends, eating one too many tacos and raising my margarita to a colourful life! Cheers!
