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 and I am getting my first children’s book published this year.

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 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!

Charlotte was very responsive, and timely, in her illustration samples that she did for me. She was able to follow my direction, and came up with very cute illustrations.

I really enjoyed working with Charlotte. She is extremely prompt with getting the designs back which is wonderful if you're in a hurry. She is patient and willing to adapt, which was necessary for me, a new author unsure of what I want.
