My Bio
My name is Rowan North and I am a freelance mixed media illustrator and art educator.

I use just about everything for my work, whether paints, colored pencils, digital, papercraft, or more. I do commissions, go to conventions and art show, and love sharing not only my work, but how to use your tools to become a better artist. I am also outspoken on issues of mental disorders.

Most importantly, I love following my passions and dreams and think all should do the same.

Let's begin there. -NEW CAR! We got a new car. It's newer, and much more reliable. There were some... Issues at first due to my own cluelessness, but it's been really good for taking me to and from conventions. Plus roomy enough to carry all my supplies without a problem! -NEW HOME! We moved to a new place... Same city. Our attempts to move clo
