This drawing was first drawn by hand and then finish using Inkscape, an open source digital illustration program. It is a botanical fantasy illustration with imaginary and real flowers intwined around themselves and other live organisms. The inspiration was old drawings from late 1800s' biologist Ernst Haeckel. This drawing was then printed on white silk to create beautiful digitally designed scarves.

About Me:
I am a versatile and passionate illustrator living in Montreal, Canada.

I embark on projects whole heartedly, and am dedicated to providing quality and original illustrations with respect to deadlines.

I use a variety of mediums to make images: pencil, ink and pen, markers, pastel and digital drawing programs (photoshop, illustrator, inscape).

My style is elegant, detailed, whimsical, pretty, magical, yet simple and sometimes minimal.

I have been illustrating since a young age, have a fashion design education as well as experience on digital illustration programs such as Illustrator, Photoshop, Inkscape. I am also following a University diploma program in AutoCAD 3D illustration and am planning on obtaining an architecture degree in the future.
