onna Kishbaugh has been attending comic/pop culture cons for longer than she cares to remember. When she’s away from the con hustle and bustle, she’s busy creating and designing unique, functional mixed media art and jewelry.

Her pop culture inspired jewelry and handbags were featured on the runway at New York Fashion Week with her friend, and Project Runway contestant, Buffi Jashanmal's Science Fiction inspired fashion designs. Donna’s work has been featured in a number of publications and books, such as “1000 Steampunk Creations”, and she has created mixed media works for celebrities and rock bands alike. When she is not creating art or jewelry, she utilizes her hard-earned MA in Fiction Writing from Columbia College Chicago by conceptualizing and writing comic stories. She also works for del Toro Films promoting Guillermo del Toro movies and other del Toro works.
