Hi! I'm Charnée de Souza. I am a Los Angeles-based illustrator and designer born in Harare, Zimbabwe, currently living in Perth, Australia. I have a BFA in Illustration from Pasadena ArtCenter College of Design. I am very passionate about portraiture and incorporating my loved ones and myself into my work through references and symbolism. I work both digitally and analog and have really enjoyed learning and experimenting with mediums in the printmaking studio, ceramic studio, and model shop. When I'm not creating or working, I enjoy spending time with my loved ones, traveling, thrifting, staying active,  training in Brazillian Jiu Jitsu, going to coffee shops, and taking my bike for a ride down to the beautiful coast of Perth for a beach day. I have loved my art experinces in the workforce, teaching art to primary and middle school children and working as a studio artist for James Coleman Studios, and hope to further my career through new creative opportunities. I am interested in a career in the freelance editorial, advertising, and publishing market, as well as in house with a paper goods or product design company.
