Fanny Berthiaume is an illustrator and visual development artist who loves beautiful books, nature, exploring, petting dogs, great food and warm tea. Her passion lies in creating imaginary worlds and characters for both illustration and animation that inspire wonder, magic and a desire for adventure to the child in all of us.
As a kid growing up in the suburbs of Montreal, QC, Fanny spent most of her childhood exploring the forest and riverside that formed her family’s backyard. Building cabins in the woods, playing soccer, chasing grasshoppers and butterflies, collecting wildflowers and observing squirrels and birds formed the tapestry of her earliest childhood memories. To this day, hopping into a car with a backpack and some camping gear remains one of her favourite feelings in the world.
When looking for inspiration, she’ll usually turn to early memories that made a lasting impression, travels, joyful moments with her family and friends, books and movies that she loves, and the beauty of nature and wildlife.
In between bouts of exploring, you’ll find Fanny in her little home studio, drawing and painting, learning whatever she can about the human mind, and quietly sipping tea in her beautiful backyard, enjoying the sun and thinking up new ideas for ongoing and future projects.
