Whether writing a novel, creating art, or emoting a poem, I draw from fairytales, myths, and fantasy. I wholeheartedly believe in the unlimited potential in each of us. My work is all about our deep connection with nature and with each other. I aim to question the usual way of things and celebrate the shared magic in our lives. Underneath it all, I believe we are magic with the power to transform our lives, world, and environment into something truly enchanted.
Ms. Matthews read her gateway fantasy novel, The Sword of Shannara, at thirteen and has since been hooked on all things magical, birthing her life-long quest to create enchanted worlds with both words and images. She strives to bring beauty, love, healing, and light into the world with every creation she embarks upon.
