Rachel Crosby, the artist behind Leanna Rae's Art is a multidisciplinary artist specializing in portraits and illustrations. Earned her BA in Communication from the University of Northern Colorado (2018). Crosby's work has afforded her various opportunities -- from local shows and featured articles. As an artist, Crosby works with acrylic and oil on canvas as well as mixed media. Her inspiration is creating art and educating the younger generation in hopes that they can relate and appreciate themselves in our world.
