Society6 || Inprnt


My name is Faryn and I live in the tundra that is Minnesota. I am currently working as a freelance illustrator using watercolor and Photoshop to illustrate children’s books, editorial work, book covers, and fanart. I enjoy tea on an obsessive level, Florence + the Machine songs, working insanely hard to have time to do nothing, and the company of my two very fluffy cats. I love to meet new artists and gain friends who share and appreciate this passion so feel free to chat with me. Thanks for stopping by! 🌀

          My Society6 ||  Facebook || Instagram ||  Tumblr ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Well this year I've done many projects I'm very proud of and haven't gotten to share yet. I'm so looking forward to sharing some cool things in 2019! And hopefully I'll have more time for personal projects as well. If you're interested in watercolor tips and information about my illustration process, take a peek at my Instagram. I post process pics and tips with every video. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I have copies of my first illustrated child

It's been a busy year with many losses and unpredictable stress, but I pulled through and got as much work done as I could. I'll be announcing some exciting shows I'm in next year as well as some more book releases for 2018 in the upcoming months. Thank you for all your continued support and kind words. Some of the best comments I've ever received have been here and I so appreciate all the encouragement over the years. :heart:           My Society6 ||  Facebook || Instagram ||  Tumblr ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I've been meaning to make an advice Journal for awhile and I've been ge

After waiting years to announce this, I'm proud to say the first children’s book I ever worked on is finally published. I started The Boy Who Answered in 2011 when I was just a sophomore in college and even though I’ve grown a lot as an artist since this project was completed, I am still immensely proud of it. It’s a story of a young boy on a journey away from home who learns to push, give, and answer whenever it is asked of him. I can’t wait to share this beautiful, philosophical fable- written by the incredibly talented Hamilton Chu- with everyone who has been so supportive of my career thus far! I have 100 first-ed

Congratulations on your DD! I love your gallery! I

Hi! I'm a new watcher, and since I don't watch that many people, I like to say why I am watching anyone. I like your art. I like your style and the slightly surreal tinges that they have. I like your use of colors and the crisp control that each line conveys. I look forward to seeing more from you! <3

I am absolutely in love with your art :love:

Your work is absolutely stunning! It really moves and inspires me! I love how your images tell stories, I love the colors, your style, just everything! :love:
