Charles van Sandwyk
Charles van Sandwyk was born in 1966 in Johannesburg, South Africa. When Charles was 11, he immigrated with his family to North Vancouver. With the wanderlust of a young man, he travelled the world and discovered the magic of the Fijian Islands, where for part of each year, he now calls his home. It is there that he draws much of the inspiration for his current work. He is best known for creating engaging mythical creatures depicting the human condition, is quickly gaining an international reputation as an artist, author and illustrator of children's books. So significant is his reputation that The National Library of Canada has maintained an archive of his work since 1986.
