About Me

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 where my hobbies include watching comedies, playing RPGs, and taking long walks in beautiful places.

About the Art 
I paint in watercolour and acryla 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 instagram.
