Biography

My name is Courtney Pearson and I am from Vancouver, BC. I have been drawing ever since I was old enough to hold a crayon.

I have a love for animals and enjoy spending time with my Pacific Parrotlet Tinkerbell and my Border Terrier mix Alfie!

Some of my hobbies include: drawing, dog agility, anything mermaid related, watching movies, writing stories and playing video games.

I have diplomas in Traditional and Digital Animation from Capilano University. I specialize in character, creature, costume and prop design.

I use Photoshop and Animate (Flash) daily for design purposes and am comfortable with both programs.
