Erin O'Leary Brown
I’m Erin O’Leary Brown, a professional freelance illustrator based in upstate NY, specializing in children’s illustration as well as botanical and nature themes. Working in traditional ink and watercolor, I also utilize digital media to make occasional adjustments or minor changes to the finished art. My style combines delicate line and rich layers of color with careful details and sense of whimsy in order to share engaging stories as well as beautiful images.
I received a BFA in Illustration from Syracuse University in 1998, and worked for several years in the field of children’s illustration, creating book and magazine illustrations for clients such as Scholastic and Cricket Magazine Group. After taking some time off from professional work to focus on family, I am excited to be returning full time to freelance illustration.
I am highly organized and detail-oriented, with experience in consistently meeting deadlines. Additionally, I bring a lifetime of developing drawing skills and a deep passion for art and creativity to each project. I have a background in running a small business as well as teaching professionally. If you feel my work would be a good fit for your current project, I would love to hear from you. I can be reached at [email protected] and can be found on most social media sites under @eobrownart.
