Kate Austin is an artist and designer from Toronto, Canada. She makes surface patterns for textiles, paper and beyond. She works in bright, saturated colours to create bold graphic designs, often inspired by nature and the seasons. Kate is always taking photographs and she draws every day in one of the many sketchbooks she carries with her. Her work has been featured in a wading pool and on cushions, bags and skirts. She also designed an entire hotel room! To see more of Kate's work, take a look at Kate's blog.
She was featured in our Surface Pattern Design Guide, and you can find her at booth 1035 at SURTEX 2014.
