Kira Houston is a student at Clark University double majoring in Art History and Spanish while minoring in Creative Writing. He works for the Safe Schools Program for LGBTQ+ Youth as a transgender advocate. In his free time (in addition to writing and acting) he creates digital & traditional character illustrations. His area of historical expertise is in Italian Renaissance art, but his own pieces are primarily inspired by art nouveau, contemporary cartoon, and anime.

Kira creates artwork with LGBTQ+ themes, highlighting the relationship between whimsical fantasies and Queer realities. He enjoys portraiture more than any other sort of painting, and he loves to create characters from his imagination. His dream is to one day create an epic sci-fi graphic novel.
