About

Katherine Souza is a visual storyteller and writer currently living in Memphis, TN. She was born in Meridian, Mississippi in 1995 and has been actively trying to find cooler weather since. Being introduced to games and films at the young age of 4, she has been writing, designing, and drawing ideas of whim and fancy since then. Growing up an avid reader, gamer, and watcher, she knew that the narrative arts were her destination.

She earned her BFA in Illustration and Game Arts at the Maryland Institute College of Art, with a small interlude to study Visual Communication at the Alberta College of Art and Design. During her time at these institutions she has learned the power of narrative art and to appreciate the more abstract things in life (like theoretical physics and Jungian psychoanalysis).

She has put passion into practice by making several games with her peers and also by writing quite a few short stories, and hopes to find a studio to match her drive to create.
