Mary Anne Lloyd graduated from the Portland School of Art with a BFA in graphic design. She moved to Boston and spent the next five years working in design studios and then drawing at night. "Finally it dawned on me that it might be possible to do what I loved the most and make a living at it," states Lloyd. She has had a diverse list of clients, including Krispy Creme Doughnuts, Nicklelodeon, Timex, and The New York Times. She currently lives in Portland, Maine with her husband and daughter.
