Katie Better

Animator, New York, NY

Animator. Chalk Artist. Bird Lady.


█ Katie Better is a Maryland-born animator and chalk artist based in New York City, currently working at Rockstar Games. For over 10 years, Katie has been working in performance capture and cinematic animation for videogames. Since 2012, after being introduced to chalking by a friend and Florida chalk community in Tampa, chalk art has been her primary vehicle of personal art; inspired by wildlife, art history and games. She has previously hosted chalk workshops in Baltimore, in collaboration with Art With a Heart. Her favorite aspect of chalking is being able to share techniques to empower visitors to get dirty, make mistakes, get messy and create more public art within their local communities.
