Art + Nature

Hayley Yip

A summation of my artistic journey so far that focuses on my two main interests in environment and background design for animation and video games as well as publishing. An overarching theme of this collection is my passion for illustration and storytelling, combined with my deep fascination with natural and architectural environments and animals.
