Having grown up on the west coast of BC, Willow knows a thing or two about the rain, although, there is not much of it where she now lives. Currently, Willow draws comics and makes handmade illustrations out of paper, glue and paint. She also collects dead bugs and wants to be Amelia Earhart when she grows up. On the road, Willow will be adding to the excitement by means of a real life drawing experience. Images created will be printed in her next zine, Not Yer Princess #3, September 2004.
