Seattle-based artist Loren Ponder creates in a broad variety of mediums, from words to illustration to comics to paint.

Their work weaves together themes of queerness, intimacy, and fantasy. They especially enjoy depicting people, nature, and creatures using bright colors and bold lines.

When they aren't directly creating art they can be found tending their aquarium water garden, wandering in local parks, listening to audiobooks, and spending time with their partners and pets.
