Hi there - I'm Loo, an illustrator and the founder of Happy Just Happy, a design studio and greeting card company based in Collingwood, Canada
I create and license art that conveys what matters most to me; optimism, playfulness, connection and community.
One of my favourite ways to connect with my audience is through my colourful line of greeting cards - tiny pieces of art that provide a visual reference or reminder of our experiences and memories - our feelings and traditions.
I also believe that art has the power to create a profound impact on people's lives which is why I partner with a national youth mental health organization,
jack.org, where I donate a percentage of sales to their initiatives.
Of equal importance to me is our environment which is why my cards are sustainably manufactured in Canada supporting local small business owners.
I believe the work I do is a reminder of my intentions, and my intention with Happy Just Happy is to create a circle of virtuous giving; from designing a meaningful card that resonates with my audience, something that contains a message and image so inspiring that it stays on the fridge door or might even find its way into a frame, to supporting sustainability and ultimately to making a difference in the lives of young people via Jack.org.
When I'm not doodling on a piece of paper or reading one of my many hundreds of collected children's illustrated books, you can find me hiking on some local trails with my trusty four-legged friends Dave and Stanley (who are often the source of my creative endeavours).
