Kate Castelli: (work) Space

I'm Kate Castelli, an artist living and working in Boston. I'll be showing as an AIB alum in the upcoming Glovebox Illustration Show.

I'd thought I'd give you a glimpse into my work space.

One of the many joys of living in the city is condensed space. My work space consists of a 6 foot long oak table my father made for me, a set of flat files full of ephemera and paper, and lots and lots of piles everywhere.

Currently I am in love with J.Herbin inks. They are deeply saturated and have delightful names. Poussiere de Lune (moon dust) is actually a deep purple color.

Assorted sketchbooks. I am never without a sketchbook, I usually finish 2-4 a year. I am currently on number 14.

A palette of embroidery thread. I incorporate a lot of hand-stitching into my work.

This is a current project I am working on for an upcoming show of artists books at Climate Gallery in NYC. It is a combination of a DaDa prompted "found" poem and woodblock illustrations of constellations.

To see more art, thoughts and assorted whatnot, check out my blog Wandering but not Lost.
