Hello, I'm Colleen Quint. I believe that story is at the heart of humanity. My passion is to create quality illustrations that communicate your vision to the reader.
As an artist, my passion is focused on strengthening stories with engaging illustrations.
It all began on a breezy spring day during a break in high school classes. I was sitting outside with a friend discussing a story she was writing. With sketchbook in hand, I listened to her descriptions of the characters and plotline, intent on visualizing this word-constructed world. As the pencil made its marks, I'll never forget the look on her face as we both realized what was happening: we were translating mind into matter!
I want to help you visualize your stories with excellence, crafting compositions that engage and hold the interest of your audience. My dedication translates directly into the work you see on this site.
I work in a hybrid style that combines the infinitely unique mark-making of traditional mediums with the convenience and efficiency of digital software.
I focus exclusively on illustrating for fantasy and science fiction because visualizing the fantastic, unseen, and legendary are what I'm most passionate about.
Because story is at the heart of what I do, I read all of the books I'm illustrating so I have a complete understanding of the world you've entrusted me to envision.
I upload new blog posts every Monday, detailing my process, business and life insights as an illustrator.
Developing meaningful and intentional relationships with my clients are top priority. I want to give you the best work that suits your needs.
