Jellie Vayas

Orlando, FL

Reader & Writer


I've been going by Jellie since I exited the womb almost 25 years ago, but you can call me whatever you prefer. I recently graduated with my MFA in the Visual Narrative, meaning I take the roles of author and artist and use them both to create immersive worlds for my audiences to get lost in. I was given the title of 'pathfinder,' and I am always looking for the next adventure. Gemini sun, Cancer rising, and Scorpio moon so I guess that boils down to my brain is always screaming and I get weird looks for staring blankly at the wall while it happens. I love true crime and supernatural podcasts and everything whimsical and wicked are my favorite. I love videogames, especially ones that focus on the story (play Night in the Woods, guys). I love the skies the seas and a bunch in between.
