About Kia Marie Hunt
I’m an author, illustrator and content creator* living in the West Midlands, working remotely from my plant-filled little home. If you couldn’t tell from my website, I absolutely love bright colours – if I’m not wearing them in my clothes or in my hair, I’ll be using them to decorate the pages of one of the many journals in my large collection!
After studying Spanish and Portuguese at Universidad de Montevideo (Uruguay), Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (Brazil), and the University of Birmingham (UK), where I focused mainly on the translation of children’s literature, I went on to intern for HarperCollins publishers. Ever since, I’ve been a project editor and content creator working in publishing and social media marketing.
All along though, my passion for all things creative has been bubbling away under the surface. As well as building up my personal art portfolio, creative journaling shop and running the art journaling Instagram community ‘Inspiring Journals‘, I’ve spent a lot of time teaching myself how to become a better illustrator so that I can pursue my dreams.
I’ve been working hard on many projects that I’m excited and proud to announce as of April 2020, including the first five books that I’ve authored and illustrated, a journaling podcast I’m hosting, and a new art journaling subscription service I’m launching. And this is only the beginning, I’m excited to see where life takes me next!
Who knows, maybe that exciting next step could involve you?
Use the form on my contact page if you’d like to get in touch with me about a possible project or collaboration. I’m open to all kinds of writing, illustrating, and artistic opportunities I’d love to hear from you!
