Melanie Ortins is an illustrator and designer from Montreal.
Though her main inspirations are from nature, she favours fantastical imagery over realism, resulting in surreal depictions of flora and fauna. Most of her illustrations begin as intricate ink drawings, brought to life through digital colour.
Melanie also enjoys illustrating children’s books. As an avid reader from a young age, she’s excited to interpret stories with her images and turn words into worlds for children to explore.
