Linda VuorenvirtaLinda Vuorenvirta

I'm a freelance illustrator who loves to design and draw characters, especially within the context of narratives. I’ve spent eleven years studying fine art, animation, illustration, and design to better my skills with figure drawing and beyond. Echoing my childhood hobby of creating picture books about families, flowers, and cottages in the woods, I’ve settled into an artistic identity centred around storytelling and characters. I’m also taking the advice of a member of the jury which evaluated my college work: “never stop telling stories”.
I draw inspiration from both intangible and real-world sources. I love music, all kinds of visual art, magic, fantasy, science fiction, and other products of the human imagination. I’m also moved by nature, history, geography, social issues, and humans' relationships with each other and their environments. I work mostly digitally with a graphics tablet or an iPad + Apple pencil, but I’m also fond of traditional pencils, pens, and markers.
