Drop 4 - 4 Letter Series x Rachel Joanis

What is your favourite word from this drop?

Feel.


Why does it resonate with you?

There are so many layers to the word ‘feel’, and it’s so deeply connected to our emotions, which are so important to be in tune with, and aware of. I love the line ‘feel deeply’, as I think it’s so important for us to lean into and explore our emotions - whatever we’re feeling, whether it be good or bad, allowing ourselves space to process and examine our emotions can help us to gain better insight into ourselves and have more empathy and kindness for others.



When do you feel the most connected to others?

I feel most connected to others when I feel like I’m truly being myself and when I don’t feel the need to impress anyone or project or conform to a particular image. Without any pretense, I feel that I can truly be present, open myself up to others and build a true connection with those around me. This has gotten easier over time - the older I get, the more confident I feel in just being myself - allowing me to build more whole and authentic connections with others.



What are some exciting things you are working on right now?

I just recently launched a collaboration I did with Indigo, which I’m so thrilled to be able to finally share with everyone. Together we created an exclusive line of homeware, stationery, fashion accessories and prints. I feel very fortunate to be involved in some fun projects currently - I’m always working on illustrations of my own to add to my print store, and more projects and collaborations are to be unveiled soon!
