Kiara Williams is an illustration major hailing from Columbia, South Carolina. She specializes in both traditional and digital drawing. Drawing has been a hobby all of her life, but she did not get serious about it until middle school. The joy she found in developing her own characters led her to pursue a career in illustration. Her work is influenced by a wide variety of sources, including comics, video games, fantasy stories, and novels. Kiara hopes to be a children's book or comic book artist after graduation.
