Jesse Alora is a fiercely Hufflepuff, dance magic-singing, hobbit-loving, glitter-brained space unicorn with a passion for creating whimsical art and brewing tea. Jesse Alora, (aka Tangle Merrytoad, 'the artsy farts fairy', or JesseAlohamora), is a Washington State based fantasy artist specializing in goofy goblins, as well as 80's fantasy film fan art. She volunteers at the Geek Girl Convention in Seattle, and is a member of the faery guild at the Washington Midsummer Renaissance Faire.
She is inspired by the art style of Evynd Earle, Alphonse Mucha, Maxfield Parrish, Brian Froud, and Alli White (aka Skirtzzz). She is also heavily influenced by Jim Henson...'heavily' is too conservative term. You'll realize that once you take a look at her full sleeve tattoo of characters from The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. She has always been fascinated by his creatures and considers him a far away mentor she'll (sadly) never meet.
