Hello! My name is Klay Arsenault, I'm an artist living and working in Portland Oregon.
I draw with pencils, colored pencils, watercolor and gouache paints. I also often use digital techniques to create my illustrations.
To create my dolls and stuffed creatures, I use mainly reclaimed wool and draft my own patterns from my imagination.
I'm inspired by the nature of all things, new faces, old faces and all the face in between.
I'm fascinated with miniature things and Iove creating tiny works of art. I like loose and messy drawings that have lots of textures just as much as I love intricate detailed works. I love plenty of moody yet bold colors in a cheerful, goofy and witty style. I guess you could say I believe there are a lot of ways to create beauty in art and life.
Please contact me if you are interested in commissions or collaborations. I look forward to hearing from you.
