About Ava Jarvis
I’m a Seattle artist studying art and illustration.
My first drawings were made in November, 2014, two weeks after I left my job of ten years as an Amazon.com software developer.
I took a gap year in 2015 as I explored video editing, software consulting, and continued my previous writing for Tor.com. In early 2016, I revisited visual art and decided to seriously pursue a new career path.
Since Summer 2016, I've been studying and practicing art, as well as committing the occasional bit of poetry. I'm also reconnecting to my Vietnamese and Chinese cultural roots, which feeds back into my art.
I'm very, very into board games and used to write columns for Board Game News (now part of Board Game Geek).
