Kiandokht Khalili – Designer

Published Children's Book Illustrator with a colourful and whimsical style.


Hello there!

My name is Kian & I’m a published illustrator & surface pattern designer based in Vancouver, Canada.

I create hand-drawn illustrations using Procreate & other digital mediums. I love creating work for children and creative individuals. I find my inspiration from nature, animals, kids, & all the weird and fantastic things in life, and I have a knack for developing whimsical characters in unique backgrounds.

Working with authors and bringing their vision to life has been a great and fulfilling experience for me. I value a great collaboration and clear communication throughout the creative process to make a stunning product that both the author and artist can be proud of.

Can’t wait to hear from you!
