Iris Thoren is a digital illustrator originally from Spokane, Washington. She grew up doodling in the margins of every piece of homework and tucked away buried in a book. After receiving her BFA in Illustration, Iris felt the desire to try something new and moved to Omaha, Nebraska 6 months later.
She was inspired by children's books, 2D animation, eyestrain art, and surrealism. She enjoys switching up her style and subject matter to keep things interesting and expand her artistic abilities. All of her pieces feature bright, saturated color palettes and unique characterization based in childlike wonder.
To Iris, art is never about the finished product; it's about having a visual record of her day to day moments. Each illustration holds the memory of what she was thinking and feeling at the time of each brushstroke. When Iris looks at the art she has made over the years, she sees growth; not just as an artist, but also as a person.
