Carissa Tanton Illustrations –
Hello, I’m Carissa, an illustrator, simplicity seeker and tea drinker based in beautiful North Wales. Creating prints and drawings with a consideration for sustainability through choices of paper, inks and my art practice. I believe our homes should be sanctuaries that reflect who we are & I hope my work can inspire you to celebrate the little things such as the ritual of making a cup of tea or your daily walk in the woods.
My work is currently inspired by my growing connection to nature, wisdom, intuition, mindfullness and our place as cyclical beings, I believe that the way to protect our planet is through a deeper sense of being a part of it.
My work is available online here: shop.
After graduating in Psychology and English Literature back in 2011 I moved to Paris on a whim to be an au pair. It’s here that I fell madly in love with art and specifically drawing.
Two and a half years later I moved back home to North Wales with a very heavy suitcase and a slight addiction to croissants and french wine.
I then joined her recently-retired dad to study art and design at the local college. After that year full of experimentation he went on to study an undergraduate degree in art and I opened up a little Etsy shop in January 2017.
As a seeker of simplicity my style developed into just the use of pen and paper, and I’m mostly known for my black and white fine line drawings.
