Tote Bag | Artist Series: Katia Engell
About the artist:
Katia Engell is a multidisciplinary artist living and creating in Toronto. While Katia's artwork is often a personal meditation (such as these rock illustrations), her passion lies in using art to connect with others. Working creatively with persons with memory loss in the community, Katia has been inspired by the different ways we experience "reality" and how our art can bridge the personal and the collective. Katia loves collaborating with other local makers, creators, and businesses. She is an OCADU Graduate and is currently completing a Masters in Recreation and Leisure, focusing on art-based approaches to working with others.
Today, Katia's art practice consists of painting and collage, facilitating interactive collage installations for events, trying not to paint every blank surface in her home, and making art with and building relationships with others.
