Kate Bingaman-Burt makes work about the things we buy and the feelings we feel. The building blocks of her practice include: bright colors, hand lettering, inventories of illustrated objects, and input and interaction from the communities of awesome people who contribute to her crowd-sourced projects. Her dual roles as commercial illustrator, full-time educator, and project-based artist overlap inform an intricate creative work flow. She is the Associate Director of the Art+Design School at Portland State University and an Associate Professor of Graphic Design. Her role as both leader and collaborator with her students is an integral part of her creative practice.
