Kate Castelli is an artist living and working in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She earned her BFA in Illustration and Art History at the Art Institute of Boston, and her MFA in printmaking and book arts from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. Her studio practice exists at the intersection of books, works on paper, and collections that explore poetic and formal juxtapositions in order to connect what cannot be connected. She is rarely without a sketchbook, frequently haunts used bookstores, and is hopelessly addicted to coffee.
