Amelie "Ami-Chan" Belcher was born in Baton-Bloody-Boring-Rouge, Louisiana, where the combination of chemical plant fumes and river water did major damage to her fragile little mind at an early age. By all accounts, she started drawing at the age of 5 (when she figured out that the pencil goes on the paper and NOT up your nose) and didn't stop drawing until she ran out of paper...20 years later.
Amelie taught high school art for four years, but lost interest in teaching when it cut into her quest to collect all the Dragon Balls and forcibly evolve her Pokémon into the Old Spice Guy. She is also the artist behind the manga "Loud Snow" and the web comic "The Real Life Adventures Of Amelie," seen currently at AmiArmy.com. Amelie now travels the country, selling her award-winning artwork and doing one-of-a-kind stand-up drawing panels where she secretly sneaks art education into people’s minds by hiding it under all the hilarity.
