Beth Mills loved drawing and painting from an early age, but worked as a legal administrator until she realized that what brought her the most joy in her job was making doodles on sticky notes and sharing them with her coworkers. Beth then dusted off her supplies and enrolled at the Academy of Art University to pursue an MFA in illustration. Beth loves visual storytelling, bright colors, bold shapes, and experimenting with a wide variety of styles and media. She lives near Dallas, TX with her husband, children, and too many cats and dogs.
