TEMPLE WEST

Armed with a very shiny English degree, West spent four months in Oxford holed up at the Radcliffe Camera amongst the hush of ancient books and the rich musk of academia. Returning to Los Angeles, she also acquired a degree in film, mostly as an excuse to write essays about The Princess Bride and Hook.

She can sew (poorly), drive stick (please fasten your seatbelt), and mostly lift her feet off the ground while stuttering into first gear on a very small motorcycle. She currently lives in Seattle and putters about in Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects making shiny things. She likes to think that, if she were a Disney princess, she would have Belle’s book obsession, Ariel’s trinket collection, and Aurora’s hardcore napping abilities.

Check out the footer to find her on Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. Or you can order her books if you're into ordering AWESOME THINGS.
