About Rye

Rye

Infiltrating the digital age with hand-drawn humanity.

In addition to earning a degree in visual communication, I’ve taken classes in drawing and illustration at Pacific Northwest College of Art (Portland), UAL Central Saint Martin’s (London), and The Royal Drawing School (London). My love of illustration, storytelling, and design culminated in a course in writing and book arts at the IPRC (Portland) where I wrote and illustrated a 50-page collection of short stories.

I have designed books for an illustrated book publisher and have also blogged about my favourite illustrators for Illustration Friday. Reading children’s stories, exercising my citizenship, and dancing to jangly ’60s rock music occupy life’s other quiet moments.

Born and raised in the Midwest, I cycled the puddled streets of Portland, Oregon for five years before moving recently to London, England. Fortunately I have a fine collection of raincoats.
