image by: J. Tanner Cusick
Lilly Karl is an artist, poet, and children's author. Originally from Southern California, she just recently finished her MFA at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
Lilly finds inspiration in the play-based, imaginative world of children, focusing on how they express sincere emotion by creating smaller worlds through make-believe, fort building, and hiding places.
Prior to the MFA program, Lilly studied psychology and child development at California State University of Los Angeles. She also spent time traveling in the Middle East, Europe, and China, exploring their history and culture through the lens of design.
