Hi, I'm Laani!
        
 I am an illustrator and graphic designer based in Toronto, Canada. My work is inspired by the shimmering layer of magic that is woven into our ordinary world. I love to delve into stories, places, themes and characters, to find and highlight their everyday magic and spirit. Within my images, I like to walk the line between mysteriousness and playfulness.
        My illustrative work is also guided by my experience studying textile and fashion design at NSCAD University in Halifax, the oceanside city on Canada's east coast. There, I designed woollen winter coats and started to explore the influence of my Estonian and Finnish roots within textile design – some of which you can see popping into my illustration work from time to time.
