About

Bio


Hi there, my name is Christine Garner, currently living in Shropshire, UK.

I’m an Illustrator working on designs within themes that inspire me. These include fantasy, fairy tale, folklore, mythology, history and nature. I’m currently making digital products for crafters and other designers and working on pattern designs and illustrations. Some of my patterns can already be purchased as fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap on Spoonflower. I am also making illustrations for Shutterstock.

I’m also developing a personal web comic. If you are into digital painting and illustration like I am, you can also find some brushes I made for Corel Painter and Photoshop on my Gumroad shop.

Education

I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Archaeology in 2003. Afterward I taught myself web coding and digital painting and eventually worked as a freelance web designer/developer from 2007 to 2015. I completed a Foundation Diploma in Art, Media and Design in 2014 with distinction.

I come from a traditional 2d drawing background but I love trying different digital art methods as well from digital painting to vector illustration and 3D software to see what I can create. I like to experiment and mix different techniques.
