Bess Callard is an illustrator and graphic designer based in Edmonton, Alberta. She recently returned to Canada after living abroad with her husband and two boys, spending the last four years in the idyllic German city of Freiburg. Originally from Toronto, she has also called Vienna, Austria and Montreal home. After having trained all her life as a dancer, Bess left the world of professional dance to return to school to study Graphic Design.
