Katy Betz is an illustrator and bibliophile with a severe case of wanderlust.

A Southern California native, she received her BFA in Illustration from Laguna College of Art & Design and her MFA in Illustration from Cal State Fullerton. She now teaches in the Illustration Department at Ringling College of Art & Design in Florida. When not in the studio or classroom, you can find Katy documenting inspiration in the great outdoors.
