Katie Payne currently teaches Children and Youth Art Class at the Beaux-Arts Academy.
"I've been drawing since the day I could hold a pencil, and started teaching myself to draw digitally in 2003. Upon finishing high school in 2008, I studied at the Corcoran Gallery of Art and Design in Washington DC for two years before finally transferring to Brigham Young University and obtaining my BFA in illustration. After living in New York City for four years, I now reside in Murray, Utah with my husband Andrew Payne. I am currently a freelance illustrator for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and one can often find my work published in the Liahona, Ensign, Friend, and New Era magazines."
