Flor de Canela is a vivacious Latina woman who is a self-taught, degree certified artist with over 20+ years' experience in creating illustrations, graphic arts, & fine arts in various media. Her creative nature has fueled an enthusiastic passion for the arts and everything she does. Flor appreciates being a part of the vibrant and ever-growing Columbus art/cartoonist community.
In 2016, she debuted her first comic series: Stuck-Up Unicorn Comics at the Columbus Independents Day Festival, solidifying her lifelong dream of becoming a cartoonist. She has since published numerous SUUC comic strips online and put together two collections. Stuck-Up Unicorn Comics has been described as “an eclectic collection of comics, featuring Flor's insights, flights of fancy and quirky sense of humor."
Stuck-Up Unicorn Comics is published through French Toast Press, a collaboration with her husband and studio mate, Max Ink (writer/artist of the Blink graphic novel series and Thinklings auto-bio comics). Flor and Max are Creative Consultants for each other’s works, and while Max is Flor’s writer/story editor, she is his colorist/tone artist. French Toast Studios is also the entity which Flor and Max use when they create original comics together and when they collaborate on freelance and commission works.
