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 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, and through his own unique whimsical style his paintings and drawings have become a firm favourite of both children and adults alike.
Kris specialises in seasonal art, focusing on holidays such as Halloween and Christmas and chooses a whimsical and relaxed style that lends itself to children’s books and greetings cards.
Kris regularly takes commissions, and welcomes requests via this website if you’d like to talk with him about illustrating books, greetings cards, character creations or one-off illustrations.
As well as producing whimsical art, Kris has written many articles and stories for several clients and has been published in well over one hundred magazines and books.
