Introducing Kate Golding
About Nella Casson

I am a multi-disciplinary artist who works in textiles, illustration, woodworking and mixed media sculpture. In recent years I have created numerous immersive installations exhibited in Prince Edward County; interactive works that aim to surprise and delight viewers of all ages. My installations have been exhibited as part of the DiscARTed art show, The Firelight Lantern Festival, and at ICE BOX, a public art festival in Picton produced by the Department of Illumination. My ICE BOX installations have been immersive works featuring large embroidered pieces and hands-on play areas.

Most recently I was commissioned by the Picton Business Improvement Association to create a series of posters to encourage residents to shop safe & shop local during the COVID-19 pandemic. I have also been awarded a Public Art grant by the Prince Edward County Arts Council to create an installation titled Looking Out- Looking Up in an empty Picton storefront window from June – August 2020.

I hold an Art & Art History Degree, Honours from the University of Toronto. Please visit my website to see my complete portfolio.
