Hello! My name is Marne Grahlman. I'm a Canadian freelance illustrator from a small woodsy town, currently inhabiting the city of Barrie. My illustrations are lightly decorative with a handmade-quality and explore metaphors in a surreal environment. 

To ask about my work or to get in touch regarding any requests/employment opportunities, you can email me. You can also visit my wordpress blog for news and more examples of my work.

If you are interested in purchasing a painting please visit my often-updated shop where you can find some original pieces. Or send me an email if there was something in particular you wanted to ask about!
