Meet Kate Crawford!

My art is internally driven, and emotionally charged…

My name is Kate and I am a self-taught, acrylic painter from the west coast.

While I have been creating art in various forms throughout my life, it was not until 2019 after having several serious health conditions diagnosed that I started creating art on a full-time basis. The creative process for me is one that is both automatic and emotional. The majority of my works are inspired by the music I listen to, the anime and shows I watch, and the emotions I have endured during my health journey. For me, creating my art is like being on a roller coaster; ups and downs, highs and lows, twists and turns. Painting for me, like life, is constant movement, constant change. The creation process is cathartic, allowing my emotions to spill out onto my canvas as a release.  Unfortunately, I don’t take commissions. This may not be true forever but for now, it’s the way I operate. For me, art is about putting myself out there. Maybe it’s selfish but commissions give me anxiety. I started to notice how I felt when I painted them, excited, grateful for the work, thrilled that someone likes my stuff enough to get a custom piece, but also, nervousness, dread, resentment, and anxiety. I’ve decided to keep my paintings close to my heart. Those who buy the paintings I make are purchasing something that I truly enjoyed making something that came from my spirit.
