Hi!

My name is Kayla E. I'm a queer Latina artist, editor, and designer from a small town south of Dallas. I studied Visual and Environmental Studies at Harvard University and was the art director for the Harvard Lampoon. While there, I co-founded the university’s first student-run gallery and was awarded the Albert Alcalay Prize in Visual Arts. I'm the editor-in-chief of Nat. Brut, and work as a freelance designer and cartoonist.

For the past two years, I've been using my roles as editor-in-chief and art director of Nat. Brut to transform the publication into a standard for socially conscious multimedia publishing. Feministing wrote "Kayla’s (by extension Nat. Brut’s) excitement, enthusiasm, and willingness to try to new things is fantastic. It is exactly what you need as you launch a new type of feminist project."

I have designed books, magazines, brochures, album covers, advertisements, and websites for both individuals and businesses. Some of my clients include The Home School, Whipporwhill, The Brandon Contemporary, and artists such as Carson Mell and Lee Baxter Davis.

My practice revolves around a self-portrait character called ‘Kayla.’ Through ‘Kayla,’ I confront issues of abuse, aging, gender, and sexuality that surround my religious and impoverished upbringing. My comics have been featured or are forthcoming in The Comics Journal online, Rough HouseThe New Delta Review, Black Eye, and The Spectacle. I've exhibited my work in New York, Houston, Cambridge, and Dallas.
