Meet AMA-Con 2014 Artist Andrea Smotherman of Ink Fox Studios

Ink Fox Studios

I’m a self taught artist for hire and I have been drawing 14 years. Anime is what got me into drawing and I have just carried on all this time. I also do a little prop work and crafting (knitting, crocheting, sewing) so drawings and prints are not all I bring to the table. My art can be seen in several places and I am always open for commissions of almost any kind.
