About me

Hello! I'm Kelly (She/Her), I'm a Seattle based 2D/UI artist and Illustrator, and I've been working in the games industry for about 2 years! I have worked on games and small projects for mobile, AR, VR and PC! My industry experience includes working at Mojang on their AR Mobile title Minecraft Earth, and currently working at Little Orbit on a game called DC Dual Force!

 

I'm lover of art, games, shiba inus, coffee, and endless bubble tea! Making art for games is my passion, because games are an art form in and of themselves! I'm especially inspired by wonderfully and whimsically stylized games. But making art for games means nothing to me if what I create and where create doesn't aim to improve inclusivity and equity in and out of the games industry! I hope to work for studios that share this passion and understand the necessity of workspaces/studios that prioritize the physical and mental wellbeing of employees, especially prioritizing the wellbeing of marginalized employees. As well as understanding the importance in the prioritization of all marginalized voices, in studio, and in the community, and aim to create games and studios that represent, respect, and uplift the diversity of devs and players! I look forward to share and support this in any studio or workplace I go as well as looking forward to making awesome art for immersive and amazing games!

Outside of work, my favorite hobby is of course, video games. My current favorite games are Pokemon Legends Arceus, The Sims 4, Minecraft of course! Animal Crossing, Genshin Impact, and a few others. Other hobbies of mine include showering my dogs with affection, making personal illustrations for prints and stickers, eating all assortments of food, and studying Spanish and Japanese!
