Angela Zhang is a Toronto based illustrator who helps individuals and businesses tell their story in unique and engaging ways. She believes images and stories can be transformative experiences that heighten empathy. Whether she’s working on a comic or a single painting, creating a narrative is a central part of her image making process.

 

 

Her journey in visual storytelling started at a very young age. Growing up in Winnipeg with its many long winters, she would spend her free time scribbling comics on the back of her mom’s Ph.D. thesis drafts. Her passion for art & story has evolved from childhood play. As the internet opened new opportunities for artists, her audience broadened & she pursued illustration full-time.  


Angela believes that style is the artist’s personal expression of what they love. Her own eclectic tastes, including video games, manga, film noir and Romantic landscape painting, have allowed her to develop a few different styles. She is proud to have teamed up with Arrow & Vine to create illustrations and gifts that are 100% Canadian designed, celebrate the city of Brampton, and feature cute cats!

Growing up in an artistic family ensured Laj had creative influences in her life at a young age. With trips to art galleries and painting sessions at home, it was inevitable that she would continue to love all things artsy.

Lover of all things creative and artsy, Yesenia developed an interest in the arts at a very young age. From her early elementary days to recent times, you’ll find her doodling or sketching  in the margins of her class notes. It started out as drawing odd looking doodles and her skills and passion have developed since then. With too many sketchbooks lying around her room to keep track of, it’s not a secret that growing up she always found joy in all forms of artistic expression.
