Megan Russell was born and raised in painfully sunny Florida, but fled north into adulthood. She is currently located in Chicago where she spends her days drawing, designing, being a giant nerd, eating all of the things, and pampering cats.

She graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a BFA in Illustration and a specialty in Art History but has spent the last 9 years working as a multi-disciplinary product designer and freelance illustrator. Her work draws from Fairy Tales, Myths, & Life. It is heavily influenced by Art Nouveau, Classical Theatre, The Ballet Russe & being a big nerd.
