Bio

My name is Kiara Lovelace, but a lot of people call me “Kiki”. I was born and raised in the Bronx and have always had a passion for art and drawing since I was a child. I went to an art high school and graduated in 2009. It was in high school where I really developed an interest in Illustration and cartooning, to express the struggles I had went through in high school. I was the teen whose voice was never heard and was able to express myself through art. I participated in an exhibition in the Bronx Museum and had a piece in the high school art show. After graduating I went right to working in various jobs and took a long break from my education. In 2015 I applied to SVA to studying illustration and was accepted, unfortunately could not attend due to finical aid. It was in 2016 I applied to City Tech and dedicated myself to my studies and get my ASS degree, then transfer to F.I.T to study illustration and receive my Masters in Illustration.
I am a hardworking person who enjoys challenges and creating artwork people can relate to. My goal after graduating City Tech is get my foot in the door in the design industry, something along Huge Inc., Buzzfeed, Design Army etc. I also have a personal goal to learn Spanish, so I can be able to design and have my art relate to Spanish clients. I would describe my art as dark and blunt. My influences are Jhonen Vasquez, Tim Burton in the dark and creepy aspect and Stan Lee influences my forever young cartoon side. I been watching cartoon and reading comics since a young child and drawing since the age of 2. This is all I know and all I live and breathe. There is a saying that always inspires me when I feel down or begin to even think about doubting myself. “Don’t tell me the sky is the limit when they’re foot prints on the moon.”. I don’t know who said this, but I saw it on a social media page a very long time ago and it has always stuck with me. My name is Kiara Lovelace and I will be an illustrator for a major company.
