My name is Jori and I'm a Vancouver based illustrator who graduated from Emily Carr University of Art and Design.
I'm a west-coast lady who loves plants, hiking, breakfast, black tea, and exploring with my German short-haired pointer, Lilo. I also have a an incurable appetite for all desserts!
I work with ink pens and Photoshop to create imaginative, detailed, whimsical, and dream-like illustrations. I love the challenge of creating an illustration with my perfect level of detail to accompany a feeling or moment from my everyday travels through life. I love it when people look at my art and feel something so relatable and distant at the same time.
My projects range from book covers and children's books to advertising, editorial, pattern design, and more. My works have been recognized by the Society of Illustrators New York, the Society of Illustrators Los Angeles, The National Magazine Awards, Creative Quarterly, and 3x3 Magazine.
