Sara Butcher Burrier Artist (Past GOH) ~
"I started drawing a lot in elementary school, working on how to draw Ariel from Disney's "The Little Mermaid". The next memory is of my mom leaving for a trip to California and I drew her a bunch of neon fairies with markers. I believe "Fantasia" sparked that one. Needless to say, I've been drawing fairies for a majority of my life, and haven't stopped. I went from Disney, to Marvel comics, to Manga, and finally in my last years of college I traveled to Scotland and rediscovered my love of fairytales. Back to fairies."
Erin McKee Artist~
