Peyton E. “The Artist” Burnett was born in Los Angeles, CA in 1997. Although she grew up teaching herself how to draw and paint, Peyton also earned a B.S. in Studio Art with a concentration in painting, and a minor in Fashion Merchandising at Marist College in 2020 to enhance her knowledge of art. Peyton’s art and focuses of study have allowed her to travel throughout 29 countries along Southeast and East Asia, South and Central America, Europe, and Africa.

Her works have been exhibited in the US and abroad including a student-organized exhibition at the 2019 Venice Biennale, Valence Projects’ “Black in Every Color” exhibitions, the Beverly Hills Art Show, World of Crete's "Select Art Fair" 2023, and various creative pop-up shops throughout Southern California. She has also been commissioned to do live painting for different types of events (including corporate) such as the Los Angeles Neighborhood Housing Services 35th Anniversary at the famed Paramount Studios NY set in 2019. Her works have been recognized in several news and media outlets such as Voyage LA magazine, Black Design Collective, Marist College’s, For the Record, Artist Talk Magazine - Issue 18, Because of Them We Can, and Essence.

Peyton currently resides in Los Angeles continuing her art, fashion & designs under the pseudonym, “Peyton, The Artist”, and through her company, THE CODE STUDIOS. Through these platforms, she intends to build an immersive atmosphere for artists of all skillsets to create and collaborate in, empower the Black community through art, and design merchandise that combines her favorite mediums to express her avant-garde style.
