Hello, my name is Betty! I am an Illustrator and Concept Artist based in Vancouver, BC. Ever since I picked up a pencil, I couldn't stop drawing! Growing up, I watched many cartoons, films and played a lot video games which inspired me to create my own imaginary world and help others create theirs. I discovered the internet when I was twelve which exposed me to many amazing artists on the net. Because I was constantly surrounded by great art, I wanted to learn, so I started teaching myself how to draw digitally in 2003. After high school, I studied at Emily Carr University of Art and Design and received my BMA in Animation (2011). Currently, I work at DHX Studios as a Senior Designer! During my career, I had the pleasure of creating art for clients such as Scopely, GREE, Inc., PBS Kids, and Vancouver Opera!
