Missoula's Science Fiction & Fantasy Convention

MisCon 38: the Dark Forest, May 24 - 27, 2024 Missoula, Montana

Cheyenna Krone

MisCon 38 Panel Volunteer

Cheyenna grew up with exposure to veterinary medicine, a passion for art and a deep interest in STEM. She attended her first convention, Miscon 2010, where she met a myriad of professional artists and kindled a professional dabbling in illustration starting at Miscon 2011.

In college, she pursued Biomedical Engineering and then picked up a second major in Fine Arts, completing dual bachelors degrees in 2018. This led to a pursuit into biotechnology and moving to the Seattle, Washington area. Outside of her formal work in STEM she is an illustrator in the PNW fantasy convention circuit.
