Illustrator

My name is Tay Collins. My passion is bringing fantasy worlds to life through art that immerses viewers.

Since childhood I’ve been fascinated with fiction and what it takes to give life to writing. Animated films and comic books always captured my heart. As a growing artist my wish is to recreate the feelings I gain from fictional stories, so that others may also be inspired.

I have solo-animated two short films and continue to grow my portfolio with constant progress on personal projects.
