Col­lette, bet­ter known as Fly­ing Viper Il­lus­tra­tion, is a full-time free­lance fan­tasy il­lus­tra­tor with a love for dragons and a fas­ci­na­tion for all things mytho­log­i­cal.

“I grew up sur­rounded by the dra­matic land­scape of north Wales, and al­ways felt most con­tent when ex­press­ing my­self through draw­ing mon­sters and dragons,” she says. “This early in­ter­est in all things fan­tasy sparked a pas­sion that would lead me to pur­sue an artis­tic ca­reer.”

The artist mixes both tra­di­tional and dig­i­tal tech­niques, work­ing pri­mar­ily in water­colour, ink and Photoshop: “I of­ten start my art­works tra­di­tion­ally and go back and forth be­tween tra­di­tional me­dia and the com­puter.”
