Whimsical fantasy and storybook Illustrations

I can't remember a time when I didn't draw, whether it be on napkins at dinner or while taking notes in school (I took a few notes too!). I even lose a lot of sleep because of art - my mind does its best art right before I fall asleep.
I used to try to stick to rules and search for "my style", but then I finally gave up and decided to let the art be what it wanted to be, even if it wasn't what I thought it should be. Since then I have found myself exploring my ideas and painting more often.
My art is about the memory of things, not always the way they are exactly, but the way my imagination sees them.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

All of my prints are archival quality 150 years plus, but to maintain this it is best to mat and frame your new art piece and place it out of direct sun.
If you don't plan to display it right away, placing it in some type of dark storage is best.

Is an invoice included in my order?

Invoices are not included in the package itself in order to save paper, while one is emailed to the buyer. If you would like a paper copy of your invoice please let me know in the 'notes to seller' section at the time of purchase

Do you take commissions?

I am currently not taking commissions, aside from custom recipe Illustrations which are available on my etsy shop under "custom recipe illustrations".

I do open up commission slots usually in January, so you can contact me if you're interested in one of these spots. Please review my work here, or on my website, before asking for a commission of a piece that does not fit my style or design aesthetic.

How can I keep up to date with new artwork from you?

I have a mailing list going for monthly updates, just message me with your email address and I'll add you to the list.

You can also keep with with what I'm working on by following me on my social media:
• instagram: @wildforestdog or instagram.com/wildforestdog
• youtube: youtube.com/c/wildforestdog
• facebook: facebook.com/wildforestdog
• twitter: twitter.com/wild_forest_dog

You can also support me via Patreon - here you can get coupon codes for my shop, behind-the-scenes process videos/images, and exclusive art.

How are your art prints shipped?

All of my art prints are shipped as secure as possible!

Prints 11x14 or smaller are shipped in a clear protective sleeve, and tucked in a flat, rigid mailer and sent via first class mail, and first class international mail. I usually get prints printed and packed within 3-5 days and shipping takes 3-5 days within the U.S. and up to 2 weeks to Canada, Europe and Australia.

Larger prints, 16x20 and larger, will be rolled between acid-free tissue paper and tucked into a rigid mailing tube for extra protection. Large prints can take 3-5 days to prep for shipping. Shipping time is the same for mailing tubes as the flat envelopes above.

Custom and personalized orders

I try to accommodate requests as much as possible, so size customization on prints are available at a varying cost.

Although, I cannot make changes to the artwork itself (i.e. gender, hair color, or further coloring of the print). My work is mostly done traditional and therefore cannot be adjusted easily, and for integrity purposes I like to leave the artwork as is.

Some prints have an option for a few changes, such as background or text. This will be noted in the listing and available for options in the drop down menu.
