About Violet

Hello! I’m a freelance artist and writer based in the Pioneer Valley in western Massachusetts, where I currently split my time between being a full-time art student and a part-time hermit.

I like skulls and the strange things that happen inside of them. I like contemplating intelligences that aren't our own, whether they be animal, extraterrestrial, or mechanical. Most of all, I have a deep love for history and a passion for storytelling, as well as a fascination with the many ways that words and images interact.

I've recently co-authored the upcoming monograph Madness In Crowds, slated for publication in July 2019, which documents the life and artwork of the largely forgotten illustrator and cartoonist Harrison Cady.

The book is available for preorder here, and the original Kickstarter campaign can be found here.
