From a young age, Kyana had a love for doodling and drawing, often staying up late to recreate her favorite Saturday morning cartoons. At the same time, her initial calling was that of medicine. From playing doctor with her cousins, which turned into a lifelong interest in science, it seemed she was set to follow a career in health care.

However, after studying both chemistry and painting in college, she was encouraged to find a path that allowed her to pursue both. She was quickly drawn to medical illustration after learning about it while working as a medical assistant at a dermatology clinic. Her time there also made her realize her interest in teaching and working with patients.

Kyana is passionate about creating beautiful artwork that helps educate health professionals and their patients about complex medical and biological subjects.
