Katherine Souza is a visual storyteller and writer currently living in Baltimore, MD. Raised on a steady diet of books, games, and films, narrative arts have always been her destination through media that intersects between being literary, interactive, and visual.
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 University of the Arts. During her time at these institutions she has learned the power of narrative art and to apply it through the lenses of ontology, paleontology, and semiotics.
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 bring her worlds to life through game and book projects. She is currently employed at Zenimax Online Studios.
