Alexis Castellanos

Janssed Solberg

Alexis Castellanos was born and raised in Florida where she enjoyed sunny days, dramatic thunderstorms and delicious Cuban food. After graduating from college, she moved to New York City and worked as a scenic artist, bringing theatrical sets to life with a little bit of paint and a whole lot of ingenuity. She currently works as a graphic designer by day and spends her nights dreaming up stories. She lives in Seattle with her partner and her extremely photogenic cat, Belle. "Isla to Island" is her first graphic novel.
