Kate Austin

Kate is an illustrator and textile designer in Toronto. Her practice celebrates pattern and colour at the intersection of visual art, design and material culture. She has a passion for public and community-engaged art and is committed to making work that is socially and ecologically responsible.

She was born in England and moved to Toronto, Canada as a child. She studied painting and design at NSCAD University in Halifax, NS and Camberwell College in London, England.


Artistic Statement

I work in bright, saturated colours to create bold, graphic work. I draw and paint, as well as work digitally in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. I’m inspired by nature and vintage children’s books, by textile patterns and my own wild imagination.
