Contact Information



Artist, writer, actress, and medievalist - great at all of the impractical things, Cardella has worked as a graphic designer, fine artist, costumer, and muralist for 30 years. She received her BA in Professional Writing from UNM in 2011, and now works as a technical editor at Sandia Labs. Cardella is working on her MA in Rhetoric & Writing. She is sometimes confused by real life. Owner of broken glass slipper, head full of dreams, heart full of hope.

Cardella has published children's books under her previous last name, coloring books under her real last name, and is working to get a YA novel published under her real name.

She has a 94-year-old mom, a grown son, a lovely daughter-in-law, and a precious grandson; two marmalade cats, a giant Akbash dog, and a little red horse. She loves words and pictures, this planet, and all the life on it.

Cardella also plays Dungeons and Dragons, and has been playing with the same group of wonderful geeks for almost 20 years.
