Kate Powell has been drawing recreationally since her toddler years. It wasn’t until 2012 when Powell decided to take her artistic career more seriously. After spending countless hours creating illustrations of butterflies and flowers, she released her series on social media outlets. The internet responded by sharing her work through countless popular art blogs and forums. After gaining a steady following it encouraged Powell to experiment in other arts such as photography, mixed media, and paint. “To this day, art is shaping who I am. It is bringing me new opportunities, allowing me to meet fantastic people, and constantly giving me hope. If I didn’t draw I’d curl up and die.” See more of Kate’s work below.
