Profile for Kate Adams

Kate is an American illustrator based on the East Coast. An avid reader, her work often depicts characters and scenes in luminous scratchboard illustrations. Each piece begins as a black surface that is scraped away line by line with a knife to reveal the white layer underneath. This traditional technique allows for subtle shifts of value, and a brilliant quality of light.

Kate graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Illustration and a concentration in English. Her work has appeared in Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art as well as magazines such as Creative Quarterly: The Journal of Art and Design.
