Native New Yorker, Kate Segal is based out of Manhattan New York City. Kate is a self-taught visual artist, textile designer, and illustrator. Kate also has a PhD in Clinical Psychology. Her art incorporates her signature use of uplifting and bold colors and is embedded with themes of nature, spirituality, and the human condition, with an emphasis on the female experience. Kate uses digital methods to create artwork, illustrations, textile designs, wallpaper, giftwrap, and greeting cards.
Kate spent her childhood going to New York City museums such as the MoMA, The Guggenheim, and The Whitney on rainy days and getting lost in the art. She became inspired by abstract and contemporary artists such as Henri Matisse, Hilma af Klint, and David Hockney. She also was inspired by her maternal grandmother, who was an illustrator for women’s fashion ads in the New York Times in the 1960’s and always wore Marimekko skirts and dresses.
Kate’s life work fully integrates art and psychology. In addition to her artwork, Kate uses her creative and intuitive abilities to help people to explore themselves, develop self- acceptance, and self-love. Kate’s joyful art is created with the intention to bring happiness and self-reflection to its viewers. Enjoy!
