Honie Beam was once let loose in a library and never looked back.
In first-grade, when asked the daunting question ‘what do you want to be when you grow up?’ Honie gave three answers: 1) Be an Artist 2) Be an Author 3) Be a ‘Smoothie Maker’. To achieve these goals, Honie moved from sunny Southern California to study Illustration and Sequential Art at Maryland Institute College of Art. Now based in Greenville, South Carolina Honie spends her free time drinking (a lot) of coffee, playing (badly) the mandolin, and doodling (on important documents) dragons.
Her work is inspired by the countless books she consumed as a child and a desire to spark that same passion in others.
