Charles van Sandwyk: Illustrator, Writer, Wanderer

You are invited to peek into the whimsical, magical world of Charles van Sandwyk, sitting down by the fire to be inspired by his love of storytelling!

We visited this beloved artist and author to discover how illustration, etching, watercolour, and book-binding by hand play into his work. See his process come alive as Charles transports you to his magical home studio in North Vancouver, where elves, fairies, and woodland creatures are conjured up to impart ancient lessons from the tales of old.

Watch our short documentary with Charles above or on the Opus YouTube Channel to see how this Canadian artist truly embodies the title of Charles van Sandwyk: Illustrator, Writer, Wanderer.
