About The Illustrator

Katura Gaines is a self-taught digital and traditional artist. At the start of her life, she began drawing anime and cartoons. As she got older, she noticed there weren’t a lot of characters who represented the people in her life. 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.
