After graduating with a BFA from Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Mallory went to New York where she studied at the School of Visual Arts and launched her illustration career. Clients love how she captures people’s faces and the added expressiveness of her color treatments. She enjoys movies and is most inspired by the Impressionists Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh.
With a background as a painter, Mallory now embraces digital tools and the strong effect perfect vector curves bring to her images. Illustrations begin with a lot of pencil sketches, with tighter drawings developed on her computer, where she blocks in her eye-catching color selections.
Mallory has two main styles. The first involves expressively drawn images with boldly colored shapes layered over them in random patterns for a captivating overall finish. Working in her second style, she creates slightly more graphic images using bold blocks of color and a striking composition.
Mallory has a client list that includes Nike, Penguin, Nickelodeon, Google, Sony Music, Refinery29, OkCupid, Simon & Schuster and MTV.
