Hello! My name is Mab Graves and I am a pop surrealist artist and illustrator living in a small corner of the dusty Midwest ^_^

4. What are your main influences?
I love stories. Fairytales especially but I have a passion for whimsy and Grimmsy. I have a slightly quirky sense of humor and I love to let it come out and play. My hope is to just make pretty things for wonderful people.
5. How did you get started with Blythe dolls?
I discovered her one day online. I saw a picture and had no idea who she was, but I KNEW I needed to have one! It was love at first sight ^_^
6. Do you collect anything else?
Yes! I have a passion for collecting New Contemporary/Pop Surrealist/Lowbrow art, and I have a beautiful collection of Picture Books. Plus just about anything old and plastic. I love vintage toys, Star Wars, Fairy Winkles, Dinosaurs, art vinyl toys. I love everything!
7. What's one interesting fact we may not know about you?
I have an Irish twin and we were nearly identical growing up. People still get us confused (I have pink hair now though so it’s a good clue ^_<) I’m also super shy and only leave my house/studio 2 or 3 times a week!
