Despite winning an award in kindergarten, Denise thought art was stupid as a kid and has only considered herself as an artist since she discovered anime and manga in 1999. She attended the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design and studied Illustration for three years before parting ways with the school to become a sort-of-part-time webcomic creator. She is the author of three ongoing (and occasionally updating) webcomics: Paradox (Girls' Love Short Stories), The Good Prince, and Conquest.
