Rachel Elizabeth Paige first decided she wanted to be a writer sometime between the second and third grade, and moved her interests into the realm of poetry just before entering high school.
She grew up as a daydreaming child with a strong attachment to nature, her spiritual beliefs and a fanciful imagination. She blends an embellishment of beauty in the world with her satirical point of view about reality and existence.
She was diagnosed in 2007 with Bipolar (Manic-Depressive) Disorder; a chemical imbalance in her brain characterized by periods of unprovoked extreme emotions. Through the years, she has learned to cope with the symptoms in order to function on a day to day basis.
She currently studies the elements of design and theater, while finishing her BFA. She is a self-employed artist, creating works of art in various forms in her free time.
