Kris Miners is an Illustrator specialising in whimsical, nature-based artwork; working in watercolour, inks, dip pens and pencils.
“Creating pictures in one form or another has always been an interest of mine, and here, via my website and social media pages I will share some of my most recent creations with you"
“Although much of my work is loosely based on the style of illustration you may see in children's books, I do, on occasions include more realistic artworks too - although I'm at my happiest whilst creating ethereal worlds packed full of small critters going about their daily duties, as for me, this type of art is far less restrictive, allowing me to produce a more organic feeling end result.”
Kris resides in the British Isles and he has a deep interest in the natural world – something that he has studied since a very early age. He holds qualifications in many outdoor interests, including a degree in environmental and nature-based studies.
It is this interest in our natural world that first sparked Kris’s curiosity in drawing and painting the wildlife that can be found around us. His unique and relaxed whimsical style has become a firm favourite of both children and adults alike.
Kris has written and illustrated his own children's books - the first, titled 'Hornbeam Hollow: The Hunt for the Halloween Pumpkin' was published in 2019, and a follow-up in the series in 2020. In addition to his own books, Kris has illustrated five other books and has written over one hundred articles and stories for various magazines and books.
Kris is currently working on the third book in the Hornbeam Hollow series, as well as a non-fiction book delving into 'mysteries'.
