There’s a softness in this work by Canadian illustrator Katty Maurey that I just find utterly enchanting. It’s hard to put into words, but her images have a tenderness and a sense of contemplation about them that I’m just totally drawn to. Her soft pastel colors seem to create imagined scenes of simple moments, but in their simplicity there is a really beauty.
Katty Maurey was born in Paris, lived in Hong Kong and now lives and works in Montreal. Inspired in-part by ghost stories and old children’s books, you can see these influences run through her work. There’s a nice variety of work on display in her portfolio so go check it out!
