Hi, I’m Amaziah Sierra, a Mississippi native who specializes in illustration and sequential art!

As a recent college graduate with experience in art education, I enjoy working with others to create art that appeals to children as well as adults. I have always experimented with various and interesting genre mixes such as supernatural/dystopias throughout my formal education and always look forward to trying new things.
