I grew up in a quiet Appalachian town in southeastern Ohio where you often had to use your imagination to keep yourself entertained. Being the creative and daydreamer type, I've always felt destined to be an artist of some kind. When I first discovered Andy Warhol in the 8th grade and what a "commercial artist" was, I knew what I wanted to be. Since then, I've been living my dream of being a graphic designer and working for several corporations and agencies, creating innovative solutions for clients.
I love to bake, collect vinyl records, go to concerts and watch art films. If I'm doing none of the above, I'm usually snuggling with my miniature dachshund, Ava, and dachshund/greyhound (no, we have no idea how that worked), India, or playing some video games with my husband.
Q&A with Kaylin
Tell us about your family.
My family is relatively small but we are close. My dad is a truck driver, my mom is a secretary, and I have one younger brother. I also have a lovely husband who is a digital art and design professor.
Do you have any pets?
I have two senior pups that are my whole world. Ava is a sassy 9lbs miniature dachshund and India is a (get ready for this) very sweet half-greyhound/half-dachshund. She’s basically a greyhound with stubby legs. No, we have no idea how this happened.

I grew up in a very small town in Southeastern Ohio, only a county away from West Virginia. As my grandma says, “if you blink, you’ll miss it”.
