Original art crafted with passion.

Astrid Colton

Artist Bio

Sudbury, Ontario
Simply, I’m inspired by the beauty of nature and hoping the viewer will be inspired as well. The detail in my work invites you to step closer and take time to observe the delicate shapes and colours you might not have noticed before. As a child, I was fortunate to have parents that loved and respected the outdoors. Through my art, I share that love and hope to move someone to explore their connection to nature too. Currently working with colour pencils, graphite, watercolours and acrylics. And constantly learning new techniques! Over the years I’ve been a graphic designer, an illustrator, pet portrait artist and a editorial cartoonist. But I always come back to my first love. Animals, and nature. Formerly trained in graphic design, self-taught illustrator. Full-time freelancer since 2004. Clients include Canadian Wildlife Federation, Environment Canada, Scholastic Canada, Okanagan Science Centre, Assiniboine Park Zoo, Forest Communications, Science North, Health Sciences North, Main Street Design (Boston), and the City of Greater Sudbury.
