About Allie

I’m an illustrator living in Ottawa, Canada.

I began drawing as soon as I could hold a crayon, and I’ve never stopped. From painting the windows of my childhood home at holidays, to distributing comics starring my friends and I in high school, to beginning my love affair with digital art media in my late teens, art has and always will be a huge part of my life.

In 2009 I started a small hobby business focusing on artwork and products for pet owners, animal rescues and pet-centric businesses. The business quickly grew, and work of varying styles and themes were coming at me left and right. By 2013 I had re-branded into what you see now.

On any given day, I’m:

  • creating commissioned portraits & illustrations for clients
  • filling up yet another sketchbook
  • selling my handmade art goods through Etsy and local craft show venues
  • creating fun content for my social media, blog, YouTube channel and Patreon page

Along with illustration, my repertoire includes comics/sequential artwork, graphic design and desktop publishing.
In my personal work, I am heavily influenced by fantasy, mythology, fandom subcultures and comics. I am a geek at heart!
