Kaysha Siemens is an illustrator who was born in the cold of Canada in 1984. Her very earliest memory (she was two) is of making art, and as she grew older and it showed no signs of ceasing to be her default activity, she figured she may as well give it a go as a career. Her favorite things to draw have always been characters from stories, so the jump to illustration was a pretty logical one. She graduated from Western Carolina University with a BFA in 2007, and has been making a living doing freelance illustration and selling at conventions across the United States ever since. She lives and toils in lovely mountainous Western North Carolina under the benevolent tyranny of her tailless cat Bobby.
