Heather Castles

Illustrator & Designer

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 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 in Cambridge, Ontario. Over the years I’ve enjoyed continuing to work on interesting projects, including illustrating over twenty children’s books and hundreds of greeting cards. 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. 

What I do
  • illustration & fine art
  • digital image editing & graphic design
  • private watercolour classes (for individuals)
  • draw-together-classes for kids (for groups)
