Born in North Carolina, yet raised in South Carolina, Keara began her service with just a Macbook, Photoshop Elements and Corel Paint Pro software along with a dream and determination to work for herself. She started off creating graphic design work for family and friends around her school and hometown through social media website Myspace, which soon led to the creation of Delux Designs (DE), LLC during undergrad years of college. Miss Douglas is now a full-time, self-taught, freelance graphic artist specializing in providing graphic designs for the public, along with custom acrylic paintings and unique wood crafts.
