Mechal Roe started drawing when she was 6 yrs old after seeing her mother create portraits of friends and family with pastels. Mechal would study her mother closely, and then use her drawing skills to create paper barbie houses that had her unique design aesthetic. She instantly loved how art was the visual representation of her imagination. Fueled by this discovery, Mechal studied art throughout High School and College. Mechal now enjoys working on unique, creative projects and children’s books.
