Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi there! I go by Maddy or Andy, and I'm a published comics artist, an animator, an illustrator, a graduate of Hampshire College & an incoming student at the Center for Cartoon Studies in Vermont! I also worked for the Emily Dickinson Museum for three years, and have a deep love of poetry 🌹
I currently live out in western Mass, but I grew up in Texas and spent a few years living in Ireland. I have a super cute elderly cat, and even after almost eight years of living up here I'm still excited about snow!
I've TA'd a bunch of visual arts classes at the college level, designed and run several workshops for teens at Amherst Jones Library focusing on basic cartooning skills and zine-making, and also taught a course for HSSP on storytelling in the Summer of 2018 :)
