My name is Victoria Balbes. I have a Bachelors of Design in Architecture with a minor in Writing from Washington University in Saint Louis. I currently work as a freelance fantasy illustrator. I grew up in Rochester Minnesota, but currently live in Saint Louis. I love to draw, paint, and sculpt. When I'm not doodling dragons, I play video games, figure skate, play Kendo, volunteer at a House Rabbit Society, and write short works of fiction.
