Illustrations by Ella Manor Lapointe

A little bit about me...

I am a freelance illustrator, currently establishing a portfolio and working on an independent Children Book project.

I work in a variety of mediums and techniques such as drawing, watercolor, pen and ink, collage and occasionally vector graphics. This site displays a few personal projects both in Children Book and in Poetry Illustration as well as commissioned work which I did for a Biodynamic Planting Calendar.

I have studied Art and Painting for 5 years in the NeueKunstSchule (NewArtSchool) in Basel, Switzerland.

I love colorline and form, I love the written word and the printed page, I love being surprised by an unexpected detail, I love the smell of a new book. I love discovering beauty in everyday life and dreaming up new possibilities. I love Nasturtiums, scarfs and elephants. I love Japanese color wood block prints, Delft blue tiles and the smell of Sweet Peas. I love my work and all the possibilities it holds for new learning, growing and sharing.
