Hi! Lovely to meet you.

I’m Likhain; you can call me Mia, too, if you’d prefer. I’m a Filipina artist and writer. I moved from the Philippines to Australia for True Love and now live in regional Australia with my partner, our two Pomeranians, and our princess cat.

My art has appeared in AN ALPHABET OF EMBERS ed. Rose Lemberg, EDITIONS JENTAYU 2 ed. Jerome Bouchaud, Lackington’s ed. Ranylt Richildis, and VICE Australia, as well as in covers for THE LILIES OF DAWN by Vanessa Fogg, THE TOWERS, THE MOON by Andrea K. Höst, THE TERRACOTTA BRIDE and SPIRITS ABROAD (ebook version) by Zen Cho, and MYRIAD LANDS volumes 1 and 2 published by Guardbridge Books, among others. As M Sereno, I’ve been published in Strange Horizons, Uncanny, Interfictions, Goblin Fruit, Stone Telling, Through the Gate, and inkscrawl. I am a 2016 Tiptree Fellow and a 2017 Hugo Award finalist for Best Fan Artist.

If you’d like to get in touch, please do send me a message via my Contact form, or directly via email at mia at likhain dot net. Interested in supporting my work and/or commissioning artwork? Please head on over to my commissions page, or perhaps check out my Patreon; your support of my art enables me to create more art and continue to grow as a creator.

I live and work in Gunaikurnai country. I acknowledge the Gunaikurnai people as the traditional custodians of the land on which I live and work, and pay respect to their Elders past and present.
