Larson grew up in Asheville, North Carolina, and attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she graduated with a BFA in 2004. She then moved to Toronto with her husband, Canadian Bryan Lee O'Malley. In 2005, they moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia. While Larson was still in college, Scott McCloud took an interest in her illustrations, encouraging her to create comics. Soon after, she was invited to the webcomics anthology site Girlamatic and produced her first professional comic, a web serial entitled I Was There & Just Returned.[2] Afterwards, Larson concentrated on a number of small, hand-made minicomics, combining her interests in comics, screenprinting, and bookmaking.

She contributed to comics anthologies Flight, True Porn 2, and You Ain't No Dancer, while working on a web-serialized graphic novel, Salamander Dream. This eventually became her first full-length book, published by AdHouse Books in September 2005; she moved to Oni Press for her second graphic novel, Gray Horses (released March 2006).

In 2006, Larson signed a two-book contract with New York publishing house Simon & Schuster. The first book under this deal, Chiggers, to be released in 2008 under the Ginee Seo imprint, will be a graphic novel about "nerdy teenaged girls" who meet at summer camp, and is intended for the young adult market.[3]

In addition to comics, Larson has worked as a freelance illustrator for various clients, including the New York Times. She is also a professional letterer; as of 2006 she is lettering Brian Wood and Ryan Kelly's Local. In 2006, Larson launched her own publishing imprint, Tulip Tree Press. She has released several minicomics and prints through the Tulip Tree website[1]; the first book released under the Tulip Tree name is House of Sugar, a collection of Rebecca Kraatz's comic strip, released 15 November 2006.

Date of Birth: September 17, 1982
