Illustration and Lettering

My work has been described as "playful yet sophisticated".

Lettering Artist

I'm always looking for a new ways to write the same 26 letters of the alphabet.

About Lianne

I've been lucky enough to work as an artist since earning my Fine Art degree from the University of Toronto in 1998. I worked as a Graphic Designer for numerous Fortune 500 hundred companies before branching out to launch my own online stationery boutique, which offered a unique collection of eco-friendly wedding invitations to customers across North America.

I transitioned into editorial and freelance illustration with focus on lettering. My work has been published in Wedding Bells Magazine, Modern Luxury Media (DC Magazine), and Uppercase Magazine, along with numerous blogs and social channels.

In 2017, I created a number of Facebook Frames for profile photos which have been widely embraced by users across the world, with more than half a billion uses at the time of writing this. This led to my acceptance into the Instagram Effects Beta, where I now work with a handful of creators from around the world to build AR experiences in the Instagram and Facebook camera.

I value all of the new friends I've made during this journey, and I enjoy hearing stories from people from everywhere!

I am proud to call Canada home, where I live with my husband and two amazing kids. My work is inspired by a lifetime of travel, a passion for nature and music, and the belief that positivity is contagious.
