Former Nebo student and self-taught sugar artist, Catrina Stanton Jones, will be premiering on the Disney Plus' Foodtastic show on December 15. There will be 11 episodes. Catrina and two other artists will be appearing in the Disney classic CARS episode. Foodtastic is a massive global competition series in which highly skilled artists create extravagant scene work and larger than life sculptures made entirely out of food from vegetables and butter to fruit and cheese. These everyday items are transformed into works of art.
Catrina graduated from Payson High School in 2001. She took AP Art classes, Painting, 3D Art and Drama classes. Catrina's interest in cake decorating began during her childhood. Her mom, Celinda made all their birthday cakes and decorated them; so when Catrina had her first daughter in 2007, she wanted to do the same thing for her daughter and started dabbling in cake decorating. She has taken an Isomalt class and a figurine class and several others.
Catrina has also competed on Cake Wars. She was invited back for a second season and won that competition.
Catrina is married to Shae Jones and has two daughters, Makaylie and Charley. Her parents are Brent and Celinda Stanton. Catrina works at Payson High School and for Payson City. She is a board member of the Miss Payson committee and is always willing to use her talents to give back to her community. Congratulations Catrina!
