Hello! I am an illustrator and writer living in Indianapolis (by way of Boston, New York City, and about a million other places). I grew up in beautiful Connecticut and much of my work is about home and the small forests I ventured into as a kid. I work with clients big and small on projects ranging from spot illustrations to surface designs to murals. I have two MFAs from the University of Arizona, one in visual communication (illustration) and one in Creative Writing (nonfiction). My BFA is in Studio Art (illustration) from the University of Connecticut.
In addition to commercial projects, I'm working on a graphic memoir about childhood and place, excerpts of which have appeared in Ecotone, Black Warrior Review, Copper Nickel, South Loop Review, and others.
In 2017 I opened Margaret Kimball Studio, an online shop that sells my illustrated wallpapers and, eventually, other textiles too.
