Kailey GreeneKailey first got into drawing back in middle school when she watched an anime called Naruto. Fascinated by the animation style she taught herself how to mimic it, especially her favorite manga artists Miura, Ji-Hyung Song, Kubo, and Kishimoto. After a time people that she knew would ask her to tutor them in the anime style, which she found to be very fun and interactive.
Kailey's mother, seeing her daughter doing so well (in both tutoring and independently) decided to buy her a drawing tablet (her first one!) so that she could continue to better herself. Although she learned very quickly, Kailey soon realized that she could only learn so much on her own and really wanted to learn how to branch out and draw other styles. That was when she signed up for the New Hampshire Institute of Art where she now majors in Illustration and minors in Graphic Novel.
Because of her schooling, Kailey has become rather proficient in using acrylic, watercolor, and gauche as well as various dry medias (though being particularly fond of graphite, charcoal, and acrylic). She loves bold, bright colors and extreme shading; she still incorporates this into her anime style as well as some new styles she picked up along the way.

Jessica LoveOriginally from Ashland, Massachusetts, Jess has always had an interest in art starting when she was little. Whether it was arts and crafts at summer camp, art class at school or creating things from her imagination at home, she loved using her imagination. Growing up, Jess spent a lot of time outdoors playing sports and even camping with her family. Her time outside is what inspires her to create art that captures her love for the outdoors. Jess' medium of choice is acrylic because she enjoys the way it easily moves across the canvas and it has a quick dry time. Her favorite
artist as a child was Pablo Picasso because of his use of abstract shapes and color to capture the viewer's eyes. Today, Jess enjoys creating art in her free time as well as helping friends and family
when they need any artistic help. Aside from art, Jess still enjoys watching and playing sports.
Her favorite sport is hockey and currently plays for a travel Ball Hockey team. She has traveled
all over the country for different ice hockey, ball hockey and softball tournaments growing up.
