Are you particularly fond of scary stories than you don't want to miss out on these.
From a young age on, Lily Mitchell (1976) is very intrigued by the famous short stories written by Edgar Allan Poe. With the thought 'it's now or never' she starts her writing career taking scenes from daily life and transforming them into scary stories where she can wander freely in the world of the macabre. Her fascination for the morbid and the strange is also seen in her work as an artist.
