My name is Katie Duane and I'm a web developer, writer, painter, and former teacher living in Atlanta, Georgia. I enjoy making art about the things that interest me the most in this world: faces and figures, the great outdoors, geology, gravity, impermanence, astrophysics (as much as I can understand!), and our faulty and fascinating human natures. I am so happy to be here on planet earth!

Formally trained as an illustrator and an art educator, I spent eight years teaching art and art history in Oregon, Ecuador, and Upstate New York. I'm currenty enrolled in the Full Stack Immersive program at DigitalCrafts, and am delighted-on-the-daily to be learning about the world of the web and computers via HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Python, Bootstrap, SASS, Node, React, Redux and more.
