ABOUT MACKINZIE REKERS

  • My name is Mackinzie and I’m a freelance illustrator living in Iowa City, Iowa with my husband, three rambunctious kiddos and an old doggo. I am proudly represented by the Bright Agency. I’m a self proclaimed picture book addict, I will never, ever have enough book shelf space.

    I am passionate about illustration. I love using textured style, well intentioned color palettes and quirky accents. I adore styling my characters and especially enjoy illustrating animals, food and other pieces inspired by nature.

    I’m a digital artist and my favorite tools are my 6B pencil brush and dry ink brushes.

    I make art for children’s books, stationary, textiles, home decor, and the gift market.
