Hi, I'm Kat aka disabledfemme! 
I'm a 24 y/o disabled 2spirit métis nonbinary femme living near Toronto, ON, Canada.
I'm a multimedia artist, mainly focusing on upcycled embroidered fabric pieces & zines.
I also paint (acrylic & watercolour), crochet, sew and draw (digitally & mixed media). I'm currently teaching myself to loom knit & weave.

a lil about my art

I've spent my whole life writing & considering myself a writer. It took a near death experience in 2013 I became physically disabled & began experimenting as a multidisciplinary artist in as many different mediums as a part of my own art therapy. I'm completely self taught in all mediums. I've since then gained a love of painting, creating zines, embroidering patches, sewing stuffed animals and vests, as well as dabbling in jewelry creation, crochet & other mixed media.

My life with my chronic pain & mental illness directly informs my art and writing. I rarely see accurate queer disabled representations or accurate borderline representations & I strive to fix this & to create art that explores gender roles, disabled bodies, the binary between abled and disabled, mental illness (especially borderline personality disorder & intimate relationships between borderlines & nonborderlines), recovery & dialectical behavioral therapy themes. 

If you're interested in my art but can't be a patreon, consider visiting my etsy shop! Thank you for all yr support & interest!

a lil extra about me

Born in Southern Ontario, Canada in 1991. Speaks english & is learning French & Hungarian. Diagnosed with C-PTSD, depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, arthritis. I take pain medication daily. I use many different mobility aids such as a cane, a rollator, a bath bar, a reacher/grabber. 

After my near death experience & complete change in my life, I threw myself into my art and into a "recovery-centric" mode where I am constantly attempting to radically accept where I am at while also attempting to always better myself & my life. I feel that my art directly helps me achieve that & explore topics that are important to me.
