Elizabeth Boylan is an illustrator and graphic designer with a passion for the classic arts, architecture and costume design. In her personal work she combines influences of Nouveau Cirque and Art Deco to create licensed images and art.
Raised in french speaking Montreal and later living abroad in Europe, an affinity to beautiful design and imagery was cultivated throughout her childhood and adolescence. Drawing has always been her most favourite past time. At the beginning of her career, she relocated out west to snowboard Whistler's powdered peaks and study fine art at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, her alma mater.
It was in Vancouver where she also met her programmer, husband and often times game design collaborator, John Borchert. Together they work from home, raising a tween daughter and a Weimaraner, named Paris.
Between client projects, Elizabeth works on the artwork and illustration for Big Top Ballet Inc. based out of New York, NY. Operating under Elizabeth Boylan Ltd. she maintains a home studio in the Yaletown district of Vancouver, while traveling to New York to build up Big Top Ballet Inc.
