Sitting in a dark corner listening to the voices in her head, Galen Dara has a love affair with the absurd & twisted, and an affinity for monsters, mystics, & dead things. 

Galen has illustrated for 47 North Publishing, Fireside Magazine, Lightspeed Magazine, Apex Publications, Lackington's Magazine, and Edge Publishing. Recent Cover art includes Oz Reimagined, edited by John Joseph Adams and Douglas Cohen, The Chapel Perilous by Kevin Hearne, the Women Destroy Science Fiction issue of Lightspeed Magazine, War Stories edited by Jaym Gates and Andrew Liptak, Glitter & Mayhem edited by John Klima and Lynn M. Thomas, and Heirs of Grace written by Tim Pratt.

Her art was chosen for inclusion in Spectrum 20  and Spectrum 21. She is the winner of the 2011 Orycon33 Art Show Directors Choice award,  the 2013 Hugo Award for Best Fan Artist, and is a nominee for the 2013 Hugo Award for Professional Artist.
