About Luisa

Luisa Fernanda


Hi! I'm Luisa Niño,

JSE is short for Je suis éclectique  which in turn means I'm eclectic. This is shortest way to describe myself.

I live in Montreal, Canada, a multicultural place where the word eclectic takes a new dimension. I speak English, French and Spanish. I love to draw, paint and design. I have a BA in Marketing and a Master's Degree in Library and Information Studies from McGill University.

My tools

I talk about my tools at length in Design Sponge's column What's in your Toolbox.

When I'm not drawing and painting...

I build websites on WordPress and Squarespace.

(As of this year, I am slowly fading out of this service.)

I love to read, watch British TV series and learn as much as I can.

I like to do Essentrics, jump on my mini-trampoline and take long walks with my dog.

One of my worst habits is borrowing a ton of books from the library and reading only one. This makes me a camel, hauling a huge book bag to and fro.

But who can resist?

I don't like to cook (I thank my lucky stars my husband does!) but I find cleaning the kitchen extremely relaxing.

Do you have an illustration project?

Begin your project!

You can also find me on Instagram: @suis_eclectique and you can also contact me through the little floating bubble on this website!
