My name is Christina Zalec, and I’m a graphic designer and illustrator from small-town Suburbia in Ontario, Canada. When I’m not staring out my window at rows and rows of identical houses (kidding – my town isn’t that suburban), I like to spend my free time listening to classic rock and hanging out with my rock ‘n’ roll rabbits (David) Bowie and Eleanor Rigby.
I’ve been creative my whole life, and I could even hold a pencil before I could walk – true story. My creativity manifests itself in drawings, paintings, digital art, photography and my slightly unorthodox and incredibly time consuming nail art (and yes, I actually painted those). Despite my passion for all things art, I had no idea how I could translate this to a fulfilling career, creatively, mentally, and financially. And then I stumbled upon graphic design during a yearbook class in high school. I loved it. It gave me the opportunity to combine many of my creative passions together, and I haven’t looked back since.
