I'm so happy you're here.
HEY THERE! I'M KATY.
I’m a Southern California based artist, pursuing a career as a freelance creator emphasizing in character design and portraiture. Most of my day-to-day work consists of illustrating, painting and designing.
Growing up in Beaumont, California, my passion for creating began young, and I’ve been making art my entire life. It didn’t matter if I was inspired by books or movies, every time I had some markers and a piece of paper, I was there drawing. I was a happy kid.
Today, it’s pretty much still the same. Give me paper and a pencil, and I am content. I love to tell stories and use a versatile range of materials to bring my imagination to life.
Skilled in Adobe Creative Suite, Corel Graphics Suite, ProCreate and traditional art mediums, including acrylic and watercolor paints, pen and ink, and colored pencil, with experience in the entertainment industry, education field and home improvement sector.
I received a BA in Studio Art from Azusa Pacific University in 2014 and an MA in Illustration from Academy of Art University in 2019.
When I’m not working, I enjoy binging true crime podcasts, attending as many Fall Out Boy concerts as possible (I’m at sixteen and counting!), rewatching every season of "The Office," and spending quality time with my spoiled pups, George and Peter.
