My name is Kim-Madeleine Avakian and I'm a nomad. My love for art definitely started young. With my mom being an artist and my dad a web designer and running school and visual communications, I've always been exposed to all sorts of artistic mediums. I've always drawn and painted, especially with my mom. It didn't really become a passion until at 13 my family started moving around a lot, and I started delving into books and magical worlds. It inspired me to draw out what my imagination painted for me, and that's when I really fell in love with it. Over time, my illustration style has definitely evolved. I love the contrast between soft and flowing water colors against carefully constructed detail work. I get lost in hours of perfecting and refining line work and details. I love nature and animals, and just beauty in general. My aim with my work is to create beauty and stir a longing for other worldliness. Many of my themes are whimsical, with elements of mythical. I want to make the world just little bit more beautiful, or project someone's ideas and dreams into a beautiful painting.
