About Katie Heckey

Hi! I'm Katie Heckey!

I'm a concept artist and illustrator living and working in California. I just returned from a six month journey working as a freelance artist and travelling in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and Vietnam. 

I studied Animation/Illustration at San Jose State University where I also served 1 year as the president of SJSU's animation club: I interned at Nickelodeon with the amazing team on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. 

For two years from 2014-2016 I worked at Brazen Animation in Dallas, Texas as a Concept Artist. I worked on Brazen's upcoming original short and pitched a cartoon series which was accepted by Brazen's first ever pitch program. I taught figure drawing in Addison, TX at Industry Giants 2015. 

This June I will be attending Illustration Master Class 2017 (The IMC) in Amhearst, Massachusetts.
