According to Kate, she uses her art to cope with and share her struggle with schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is basically a debilitating mental condition which can hamper people’s interaction with reality itself. It affects roughly one percent of Americans and delusions and hallucinations are a major aspect of living with this condition. However, Kate who had been labeled as ‘mentally ill’ since she was a child, has finally accepted the mental condition in her stride and paints how a schizophrenic views life for normal people to see.

“I like knowing what I created from something so destructive has made people feel positive,” she says.
