Story. Image. Adventure.

Stories and images capture our minds and take us places, stretching our mental landscapes to make room for the depth and breadth of the fathomless human soul.

Each month Shayla will send you a short story, spanning a variety of genres, with original illustrations by the author herself. You will also be the first to hear updates about written projects & publications, as well as art news and upcoming gallery events.

Let the adventure begin.
