The work of Rachel Meuler can easily be described as collages more than paintings, yet it is the latter category that they fall into. It is her ability to combine and overlap humans and animals in a surreal fashion that gives her work a mixed media feel. On another level, Rachel Meuler's hybrid creatures have a fantastical appearance that will appeal to those with big imaginations.

Based in New York City, Rachel Meuler is part of the Made With Color community, which Beautiful Decay has teamed up with to highlight up and coming artists. Beautiful Decay writes, "The combination of human and animal imagery reinforces the similarities between all living things, while referencing characters from ancient mythologies, folklore and fairy tales, Jungian archetypes, evolutionary anomalies, and the mutant results of genetic engineering – beings originating from and entrenched in cultural fears and fantasies."
