Hi! My name is Jo-Anne White, I’m a 22-year-old artist, from Calgary, Alberta and I’m currently about to enter my 4th year of illustration at AUArts. Throughout my life my two biggest passions have been art and storytelling. I’m a huge fan of anime, comics, and kawaii culture so you’ll see a lot of this reflected in my work. I know it’s probably obvious looking at my art, but I really like cute things. I find that cute things have this ability to make people happy like nothing else, so that’s why my work often incorporates cute aesthetics. As much as I love cute things, I find the weird and creepy just as awesome. The combination of the cute and the weird, or just the combination of conflicting themes in general are a main inspiration for a lot of my illustrations at the moment. Most of the prints I have here reflect this. When I’m not making art I love reading, writing, gaming with friends, and taking my dog out for walks. I’m always trying to explore new things with my art, so if anything here has caught your eye, check out my social media! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!!
