Kayla Barker (she/her), Co-Visual Media Editor

Senior Kayla Barker is an art enthusiast. Barker enjoys spending time drawing, painting, or learning more about the craft by watching videos by other artists. 

“I do kind of a mix of everything. I want to work in visual development for games, animation, and film,” said Barker. “It’s a very specific type of concept art and design work, but I also study traditional painting, drawing techniques, and fundamentals like perspective, composition, values, color, lighting, etc.”

Showing artistic potential from a young age, Barker began to seriously invest in her work once she reached the 5th grade. Today, she runs the art staff alongside her co-editor Ashley Xu. They work in tandem with the layout editor, Ali Montee, as well as collaborating with the video editor, Grace Kelly. 

Barker also avidly enjoys film, games and animation. She aspires to work at notable studios such as Riot Games and Pixar Animation. Her favorite films range from Howl's Moving Castle to Pan’s Labyrinth, always entranced by the fantastical.
