About The Artist

Avatar Postcard 2015-2

Kiara Williams is a Class A geek born and raised in Columbia, SC. Drawn to fantastical stories from a very young age, it seemed only natural to eventually start to write them herself. Kiara frequently got in trouble for drawing in class throughout her childhood, but it paid off when she got a degree in Illustration from Winthrop University in 2013. She is currently working as a freelance designer and drawing a weekly Magical Girl webcomic called ‘The Electric Rose’.

Kiara has gotten work printed and reproduced on posters and mugs for the Department of Design at Winthrop. She typically works in digital art (Paint Tool Sai and Photoshop), or traditional art such as markers, colored pencils, graphite, and watercolor and gouache paints.
