Terese Nielsen had a steady and almost effortless flow of work following graduation. From Landmark Entertainment to Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, NPQ, Writer's Guild and Administrative Radiology, it wasn't long before she landed several superhero trading cards with DC and Marvel, which was the beginning of her work in the comic book and gaming industry. Perhaps the highest profile comic book she produced was Marvel's "Ruins".
Wizards of the Coast caught wind of her work in 1996 and she emerged within Magic the Gathering through Alliances that same year. She has been in most of the card sets since then, and continues to be a powerful artistic influence within the role-playing world.
