After her strict Middle-Eastern father forbade her to act, dance, or sing publicly, Orli Auslander turned to drawing because pencils were one of the few things that couldn’t be outlawed. At 17 she dropped out of school to earn money and fled her family’s home in London, England landing in New York City. Auslander spent years building a business as a milliner, making hats for the Kentucky Derby, for Hollywood movies and clients like Bruce Springstein and Cynthia Rowley. Needing a change she left to become a Radio Personality on WLIR, New York. In 2002, Auslander returned to her first love, drawing, sculpting, and painting. Auslander created her first graphic novel Vagina Money. Her work has been shown at numerous galleries and most recently has appeared on the series Happyish for Showtime Television.
