Kate Neckel has been illustrating and creating drawings ever since she can remember. Her work has been exhibited in galleries nationwide. 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 and the Ace Hotel NYC.
From a fortuitous stint in Paris where she found herself in Karl Lagerfeld’s studio, 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.
