"Kate Neckel has never been bound by the traditional confines of canvas and paper." The New York Times
Kate Neckel's work has been exhibited in galleries nationwide and most recently in the documentary, "House of Z". In addition, she has created drawings for books, magazines, bands, billboards and had her own line of bedding and home goods for Italy's Bassetti. Kate is also the author of Start Now! The Creativity Journal.
Kate and her drawings have been featured in publications including Vogue, Vanity Fair, InStyle, O, and Fast Company, among others. Neckel’s drawings have been commissioned for the walls of private residences as well as public spaces, such as Hudson Studios, Cole Haan and the Ace Hotel NYC.
From a fortuitous stint in Paris where she found herself in Karl Lagerfeld’s studio, to art school, to assisting David Byrne and documenting the beginnings of Zac Posen’s career, she has consciously carved out her own unique path.
Kate holds a MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art and a MFA from School of Visual Arts. After 17 years in NYC, Kate currently creates work from her studio in Seattle.
