About Heather Castles

I am a traditional & whimsical illustrator, with a variety of styles that lend themselves to designs that require storytelling. After studying in graphic design & illustration from studying at the Alberta College of Art and Design and Capilano College, I gained experience in graphic design and illustration at a busy greeting card publisher. Over the years I’ve enjoyed continuing to work on interesting projects, including illustrating over twenty children’s books. Telling stories visually is a lot of fun, and I enjoy the variety of working whimsically in paint or pencil, to working traditionally in oils, acrylic or watercolours.
