Katherine Streeter is a New York City artist who studied at the Massachusetts College of Art and the Chelsea Design Institute in London. Her collages are inspired by the fashion industry, music, narratives and murals, and various traditions. He has long been an illustrator for numerous institutions around the world. "Before I got to my personal style, I tried a lot of methods and realized that I would be more successful in my work by understanding more of the contradictions in the universe," she says. In the early years of my career, I moved to California, and its unique geography, colors, light, and coastal open air quality greatly influenced my work. In California, I worked with the San Francisco Guardian and the East Express. After a few years I moved to New York and together with three other illustrators we set up a studio. Working with other illustrators motivated me a lot. I always let my surroundings really affect me. I love old objects, antiques and various dolls. I draw everything with preconceived ideas; I start with an idea and then work on the materials to make it. While working, I set myself free so that all previous experiences can penetrate my subconscious and affect my work. Like many illustrators, Streeter tries to balance her career between commercial and personal projects. "I'm trying to combine the two worlds," she explains. "She has had a great impact on me personally, and ten years of working with her has given me a lot of artistic freedom and creativity," says Patrick JB Flynn, artistic director and publisher of Streeter. Katherine is one of those rare illustrators who constantly brings an element of wonder to her art.
