About the Artist
On paper, I am an illustrator and graphic designer, but in my head, I live the life of a fearless adventurer, powerful Amazonian woman, and the nerdiest of nerds. My name is Kayla Dunham-Torres, but almost everyone calls me K.
I’ve studied illustration (animated and publication design) and graphic design at the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) in Savannah, GA; a school merely 3,000 miles from my hometown of Granite Falls, WA. Working under renowned creatives like Mike Wimmer, Casey Nelson, and Mohamed Danawi, I found a passion for the nitty and gritty-styled artwork I have become known for.
As an artist and designer, I wish to create works for people, companies, and organizations comprised of not only good people but good ideals. I want to get up every morning and be excited and proud of what I am doing as a creative human being. My art style has been described as punk, urban, and gritty, reflecting on my roots, my personality, and my mission to make a language for the underdogs.
