First thing’s first: Yup – Rainbow is my real surname.
And as it suggests, I am a lady of many colours.
I have always been a creative at heart, but after purchasing an iPad back in 2017, I discovered a new love of digital art and design. After months of playing and hours of YouTube tutorials, I dove headfirst into the wonderful world of fabric and textile design… and my life changed forever.
A brand-new door opened for me, and I finally realised that ‘little Kasey’s’ dream of being a full-time artist was no longer just a dream. I could see that it WAS possible to support my family by doing what I love most – creating. In February 2020 I took the ultimate plunge and quit my ‘safe’ office job to pursue my dream full time. It has been a wild ride, but I can safely say it was the best decision I ever made.
Whilst I may still be a relatively new name in this space (and completely self-taught), I am determined to live my dream and show others that they too can live bright and dream big.
My purpose has always been to live bright.
I have suffered from mental illness since I was 18 years old, and this has formed a huge part of who I am as a person.
Many times, during my darkest periods, I would look to art in a bid to inject some brightness into my world. It has helped shape me into the person I am today and the sole purpose behind my art and design is to help others by doing the same.
I am passionate about supporting Australian small businesses (particularly female owned) wherever I can. Many of the products you can find in my store are locally handmade by small business owners.
By commissioning them to make exclusive products for me, it is a way I can give back and support the landscape of Australian small business.
However, this is unfortunately not viable for all products.
Some of my products are sourced offshore, however I am always mindful of the suppliers I choose to connect with and use. Where possible, items are made to order, or in small quantity batches in a bid to reduce waste and help the environment.
I like to be openly honest and transparent, so if you have any questions, concerns or feedback regarding any of my products, please do not hesitate to reach out and chat.
All designs featured within our store have been designed by me personally. I have been told that my use (and love) of colour is hard to miss, making my designs instantly recognisable.
You may also notice, I am particularly fond of leopard print…
I have loved animal print for as long as I can remember and when I began my journey into the textile design world, I was determined to redefine ‘leopard print’ and bring it into the spotlight.
