Amarilys Henderson

Watercolor Illustrator, Design Thinker

I process on paper and I problem-solve with keystrokes.

As a commercial illustrator, I've had the pleasure of bringing the dynamic vibrance of colorful watercolor strokes to everyday products. My work is licensed for greeting and Christmas cards, art prints, drawing books, and home decor items. My design background influences much of my recent work, revolving around typography and florals. 

If anything describes me, it's that I'm an explorer. I am interested in how things work, often bouncing from the fine art world to vectors, from paint to textile patterns. I'm forever ignited by new ideas and projects, aiming to master them while enjoying the process.

While my professional work in illustration and wedding stationery are driven by trend, my personal work springs from my faith. Bold beauty and ingenuity are my aim every time.
