My name is Kayla Uqdah. I am a visual artist with a strong love of ink and ideas, expressed through a multitude of visual outlets. I believe, much like the surrealists, that there is merit in the unconscious mind’s ability to produce images. This trust has led to me developing a process that begins with a black pen and no way to erase any markings. The idea is the driving force of each piece I create and each commission that I take on. I believe that art can teach you by showing you and the works I create aim to serve a greater purpose by speaking to a place deep within the viewer. My design aesthetic is clean and therefore  timeless; I believe that design should embolden your message rather than distract from it. I seek to emulate the persona of each individual, company or organization I work with through careful consideration of color, typography and symbology.
