Hey there!

My name is Sanya. I'm a freelance and comic artist originally from Winnipeg, but currently based out of Toronto, Canada.

As a freelancer, I take on a variety of art-related projects -- everything from concept sketches to full-fledged illustrations. All of my work I do from start to finish: that includes penciling, inking, and coloring. Check out my portfolio for some examples of my work and my process. If you're interested in working with me on a project, shoot me an email. I'd be glad to provide you with a quote, or answer any other questions you might have.

Outside of my freelance work, I focus full-time on my very own comic book: 1001.


As of yet, the best place to catch me in person or to buy my comics/prints are at comic cons and trade shows. I'm currently scheduled to appear at the following shows, with more to come as the year goes on

  • HeroesCon (June 17-19, 2016 @ Charlotte, North Carolina)

I've got more shows in the works this year, so keep an eye on my twitter account to see where I'll be next. :D


Check out these example of my current work: all inked by hand, with originals for sale via at Comic Art Fans. If you'd like to see some examples of my convention sketches, just take a look here.


"1001" is a reimagining of the life of Scherezade: the cunning heroine of the original tale "One Thousand and One Arabian Nights." Issues #1,#2 and #3 can be downloaded for free (!!!) at the links below, or purchased at any of the comic cons I'll be visiting. Look out for Issue #4 to be launched winter 2015.

Caught between political intrigue by day and a mad, murderous king by night, Scherezade must use her wit and wild imagination to survive. Here are just a few of the characters that you can expect to meet along the way:
