Carolynn Anctil Design

Watercolour Illustrator, Storyteller, Photographer

Handcrafted in Canada.

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”

My style of art creation is lighthearted, with a hint of magic, and is designed to inspire joy. It is my sincere hope that my works of art are a place of rest for a mind made weary by the noise and chaos of our world.

“Art is essential, not ornamental.”  Stephen Roach

Create more ease, peace and tranquility, in your work and life with monthly snail mail deliveries to your mailbox.

My artwork sparks the imagination and speaks to the carefree child in all of us who dreams of faraway places where wishes come true.

I create my watercolour illustrations by hand and infuse them with the kind of everyday magic I believe exists all around us, before I offer them as prints for you to enjoy.

“Imagination is the only weapon in the war against reality.”  Cheshire Cat, Alice in Wonderland

My photography is inspired by country life and the peace and serenity inherent in nature.

Have you heard about my Art Initiative?


I created this hashtag to celebrate the creation of art, purely for the pleasure it brings. It’s not about making “good” art (whatever that means), or even art that sells. It’s about tapping into our natural inclination to play and not about monetary gain. It can feel like a rebellious act.

I’m committed to following this feeling of freedom and playful expression wherever it leads. If you decide to join me, please use this hashtag and tag me, so I can follow along.

"In our present day, it can be easy to conclude from the various crises taking place around the world, all the injustice and political unrest, the rampant poverty and environmental threats, persecution and killings, diseases and displacements, that art & beauty are mere luxury. It could even make some feel that to focus on art & beauty is insensitive or short sighted. However, I want to suggest that it's precisely because of these desperate situations that the artist is called upon to beautify the world with art and engage these issues from a vantage point of hope."
