HAYLEY POWERS THORNTON-KENNEDY

Is an illustrator / designer / maker living and adventuring in Baltimore.

Hi! I'm an East Coast based, West Coast born maker currently pursuing my MFA in Illustration at Maryland Institute College of Art. My drive to create is fueled by a passion for narrative and creative problem solving. When I'm not working, you'll most likely find me either in the woods soaking up nature, or in a coffee shop soaking up caffiene and pastries.
