Mariah Llanes

Hello! My name is Mariah Llanes and I am a Filipino-Canadian freelance illustrator based in Toronto with a love for colour and all things humorous. Most days, you can find me listening to Kpop, reading up on new cooking recipes, and playing with my dog. 
Feel free to email me with commissions. I'd love to work with you!
