Tori Tissell's Profile

About

I love to draw, read, and create, and it's my goal in life is to combine all three as much as possible. I try to exercise my creativity in my illustrations in addition to apparel design.

I hope my work makes this world a bit of a better place by allowing others to proudly and easily express their neerdiness and love for literature. Furthermore, I'm happy that I am able to employ some wonderful people to help with the tasks of running my shop. We are all proud to have a product that is 100% American made. I couldn't do any of this without the amazing support and help of my husband, Chris.

I am from South Carolina, which is where my professional background in art started. I majored in fine art at Anderson University for a couple years before heading to New York City where I received a BFA in Fashion Design through Pratt Institute. While attending school, in…

I am from South Carolina, which is where my professional background in art started. I majored in fine art at Anderson University for a couple years before heading to New York City where I received a BFA in Fashion Design through Pratt Institute. While attending school, in addition to winning awards and design contests at Pratt, my designs were also featured on MTV Live and Women's Wear Daily. Now I'm currently rooted in Portland, OR where I still dabble in fashion and illustration.

In what little free time I have I’m either reading, enjoying the great Northwest, playing video games, cooking, or trying to convert what was my husband's bachelor pad into a livable space. Most often these activities typically include coffee. I'm also a part time yoga instructor that specializes in teaching Holy Yoga™.

I like to think I was destined to create my storiarts scarves- I was born in 1984 (George Orwell anyone?), I have always devoured books, I once worked in a library, put an s in front of my name and you get "story," there is a sci fi label called Tor, and I'm now married to a talented writer whose family is related through marriage to Jane Austen. Life is funny and God's plans are the best. I credit Him for putting ideas into my head.

My illustrations and designs are originals and patent protected.
