To fix this, she began drawing a more diverse array of characters who represented the people around her. Katura’s art journey has involved various mediums and styles, and she’s worked with several authors to bring their stories and characters to life. She is best known for her personal paintings of vibrant scenes, featuring women of color and soothing palettes.
