Hey, there! I'm Maggie, a freelance Character Designer, Storyboard Artist, and Graphic Designer.

I lived in Massachusetts until attending the Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, GA, graduating in 2017. Then I moved there a couple years later!

Most of my work leans toward the more silly side, but I do occasionally 

delve into horror. But I'm always excited to try something new!
