cover artist

Christiane Shillito

Christiane is a selftaught British artist and illustrator who grew up in Newcastle Upon Tyneand spent several years traveling the world before landing in Los Angeles, where her studio is currently based. She grew up with a nerdy love for anything fantastical, whether it be folklore and mythology or sciencefiction, comic books and fairy tales. She has shown work in several small galleries in Los Angeles and had a solo show in 2015 at the Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas, which focused on work inspired by her former career as a professional fetish fashion and art nude model. Coming from that 15 year alternative modeling career had a huge impact on her artwork ... She’ll often look back to the fetish and avantgarde clothing designers she has worked with when it comes to the fashion elements of her work. Similarly Christiane is inspired by other alternative models, both those she has worked with in the past and those she discovered more recently via social media.
