Mai Ly degnan is a freelance illustrator, pattern lover, and greeting card maker based in Baltimore, MD. She previously earned her BFA in Illustration at Savannah College of Art and Design as well as her MFA in Illustration Practice at Maryland Institute College of Art. Originally from a small town in central Florida, Mai Ly grew up surrounded by orange groves and gator paraphernalia. It was there that she learned to appreciate all things fun and kitsch. Lately, much of her time is spent with a .005 micron, brainstorming and drawing tediously patterned illustrations inspired by humor, relationships, and imaginary things. Her passion is in creating imagery and illustrated goods that make people laugh.
