serena malyon illustration

About me:
Hello! My name is Serena Malyon and I’m a Canadian freelance illustrator. I grew up around art and spent my early days drawing medieval maidens and knights. In 2012 I graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design, and I’ve built a career on my love of fantasy and adventure. I currently reside in Alberta with my boyfriend Nathan, where my hobbies include raising my 2 cats, playing RPGs and taking long walks in beautiful places.

About the art:
I paint in watercolour and gouache, but I like to play with digital painting in my art as well. My work is filled with bright colours, strange compositions and fantastical subjects. For process videos and progress shots, visit my blog or instagram.

Selected clients:
Tor Books, Orbit Books, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Kids Can Press, BOOM! Studios, Orca Book Publishers, Annick Press, and Fantasy Flight Games.
