About me

My name is Émilie Dore. I'm a Canadian artist living in Québec.

I'm doodling since I was a teenager. In my twenties, with the help of mentors, I've learned how to create logos for company and preparing them for promotional products. I've been in the industry of conceptual art since 2011. I've designed visuals for helmets, skateboards, baseball bats, educational tools and more. It's in 2014 that I decided to dedicate myself professionally at illustrating artwork.

I got back to school in 2017. Going back to school in your thirties requires a lot of focus and commitment. Not only do you have the demands of being a student, but you also have to balance your time between family, work, and school.

I have successfully earn my College degree in Visual Arts in 2019. I'm currently a freelance artist and visual arts technician.

Artistic approach

I've been doing mainly digital art for 10 years. I bought my first Wacom and fell in love with all the possibilities.

I've learned mostly by myself until 2014. During that year, I discovered and exchange with people all around the world about technic and tips. The internet is full of talented artists who openly share their skills.

With my recent return to school, I rediscover the pleasure and genuine tension of traditional work. You don't have the magical key of CTRL+Z in real life ,and it's a real challenge. I'm experiencing another type of satisfaction when I can fulfill something away for my computer. I wish to work more with old-fashioned artwork and bring my fresh energy to it.
