About

Hello!

Thank-you so much for visiting this web page! My name is Jade Greaves and I created Sparkle Planet to be a fictitious place inspired by pop culture, music and the stories that surround and excite me everyday. Though I am a self taught artist, I attended the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, and graduated in 2013 with a BFA specializing in Visual Arts and Theatre Production. Growing up as an only child, children’s literature and graphic novels introduced me to worlds of ideas, places, characters and artistic styles! Now that I’m older, I aspire to be a children’s book illustrator so I can in turn share my stories and ideas and hopefully inspire others to create, imagine and inspire!

I’m currently based out of my home city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. When I’m not working on my own art, I work with youth across the city on various self development and artistic projects as an active member with several not-for-profit organizations. I update this page whenever I have new art to share, but you can always see what I’m into and up to on tumblr, TwitterFacebook, or at my website, jgreaves.ca. Be inspired and be inspiring!
