Mel Paisley

Savannah, Georgia, US


I'm an author, illustrator, and general peddler of curiosities based out of Savannah, GA. I enjoy modern fairy-tales, art activism, and making food that possibly looks even better than it tastes (alas, the trials of being a trained designer and an untrained yet enthusiastic chef). I have been published previously by Polychrome Ink, The Port City Review, Meerkat Press, and Psyched! Magazine, as well as nominated for a 2016 Pushcart Prize and featured in seven gallery exhibitions.
