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