Ingrid V. Wells earned her MFA from San Francisco Art Institute and her BFA from Arizona State University. Her work fancies the fantastic and humorous in theme and the charming, the kitschy, and the celebrity in subject.

Her work has been shown in the Bay Area at Voss Gallery, New York at the Untitled Space, PULSE Miami with Treat Gallery, and internationally in South Korea at the CICA Museum. Her work has been featured by The Jealous Curator, The Huffington Post, Daily Mail, BUST Magazine, El País, Create! Magazine and Teen Vogue, among others.
