LeUyen Pham (pronounced “Lay-Win Fam”) was born in Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh City). Her family left in the final days of the Vietnam War and settled in Southern California. LeUyen spent two years at UCLA studying political science when she decided to take an art class. Impressed with her work, the head of the art department guided her toward the prestigious ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, where she majored in illustration. After graduation, LeUyen worked for DreamWorks’ Feature Animation division as a layout artist and illustrated books on the side. KACU's Heather Claborn speaks with her in this interview.
