Ariel Marsh grew up in Moncton, New Brunswick. As a kid, she could always be found drawing or with her face buried in a book or two.
Once Ariel hit junior high, she developed a more serious interest in art, from pottery and sculpture to painting in all sorts of mediums. In college, she took Intro to Animation, and then a 3D Graphics and Design course. After leaving college, she focused on commissions, ranging from pin-ups to murals.
After moving to Nova Scotia in 2007, Ariel started to attend local conventions in the artist alleys. She soon launched her personal brand, Sweet Loots, consisting of original digital and watercolour illustrations, pet portraits, greeting cards, and some pop-culture paintings.
At Hal-Con 2010, Ariel met Jay Paulin and soon discussed working together. They started with the poster and cover to the Ink'd Well Comics charity anthology What The Wild Things Read, and it's exploded from there.
In her downtime, Ariel enjoys playing Dungeons & Dragons and all sorts of board and video games, watching movies, listening to podcasts, and of course reading!
