cooley

My name is Ginger Cooley; I live in Alaska. I specialize in digital artwork, a versatile and effective media for graphic design and illustration. My art features a variety of content, including high fantasy/character designs, learning activities for children’s’ books, animals and landscapes. I love to learn, love to share what I learn, and I enjoy creating artwork that encourages inquiring minds. 

I believe all people are born with the desire to create – hand a crayon to a child and you will see. As a child, I tackled all manner of arts and crafts, and am fortunate to have never outgrown the habit. I love to produce vibrant and detailed works that reflect my passion for learning and adventure. It is my wish to see more people retain the youthful spirit of creativity. Art is not only a wonderful catharsis, it is way of living and inspiring others.

My biggest sources of inspiration are Studio Ghibli’s animated feature films (Princess Mononoke being my favorite), Alaska’s natural beauty and brutality spanning the cycle of seasons, and most of all – kindness, friendship and forgiveness.

Camping, Down-hill Skiing, Fishing, Gardening, Hiking, Hunting, Kayaking, Swimming, Tae Kwon Do, Video Gaming (Xbox Live: “Strijder”), and Learning New Things!
