My Bio
Astra was born and raised in Victoria, Canada. An only child, she found ways of entertaining herself through self-taught drawing, singing, sewing, painting, writing and creating worlds for her numerous stories. The majority of Astra's art features her original fantasy characters, from Steampunk to sci-fi to high medieval fantasy genres.
