Charlotte Philtjens – Designer

Illustrator for children and book lover with a whimsical point of view.


Hello there! I am from northern BC Canada. I have been an illustrator for 10+ years and went to art school in Belgium. My illustrations always have a whimsical trait to them and are usually done with watercolours and pencils although I now work mainly in digital form for more flexibility with my clients. They are warm and inviting to children, completing a story with strong colours and fine details, I have a lot of experience with custom paintings for clients.

I am very passionate and enthusiastic about my work and I make sure to communicate as much as possible with my clients to get a deep sense of their needs. I am also bilingual English-French. I can’t wait to work with you!

Charlotte is a wonderful artist, who adds many wonderful details to her illustrations. Her ability to draw facial expressions brought my dragon to life and made me even more excited about the story I was telling. Her colour choices are spot on! Charlotte is professional, patient, and extremely understanding. I would definitely work with her again and send other writers her way.

It was a pleasure to work with Danielle, we were on the same track right away and she let my imagination flow with her story. I would for sure work with her again!

Charlotte has great ideas, she is patient (this was my very first book so I needed guidance). She took time to understand my “vision” and made my book look fun, sweet and entertaining.

It was a pleasure collaborating with Polly, I hope we get to do it again!

Charlotte was absolutely wonderful to work with! As this was my first project, she took the time to answer all of the many questions I had and she was constantly sending me updates and letting me know the things she needed from me. I would definitely recommend and I plan on collaborating again with Charlotte in the future!
