About the Artist
Hello, and welcome! My name is Shilo, if the title of the site didn’t give it away. 😉 I’m from Yukon, Canada, and have loved to draw and create since I was old enough to hold a pencil. I consider myself more of a jack of all trades, master of none (no one can be a master, there is always something more to learn!), as I enjoy trying all sorts of new art projects all the time. From drawing to working with clay to painting to my newest passion, sewing, I enjoy the variety. I am largely self taught, learning from watching others, and simply trying new things. I feel that the best thing about art, is there that there is no end to the types of creativity a person can try!
I’ve always been a fan of cartoons growing up, something that sticks with me to this day. Cartoons, comics, and video games are all heavy influences in my life, especially things like Sonic the Hedgehog, My Little Pony, Astroboy, and Disney in general, so don’t be surprised when you see lots of fan art in my gallery! I’ve been an avid poster to art sites like DeviantArt for years, and have gone by a few online names like Tilas, TilasTrinity, and KeonaKii.
I’ve started to follow in my fathers footsteps and get into sewing, though while he is an upholsterer, I lean more towards making stuffed animals. I have always loved collecting plushies, so getting into actually making them felt like a natural evolution. I have so many ideas for plushies I want to eventually make, I don’t think I’ll ever get to them all! I hope to eventually start making my own plush designs to sell online!
