I’m Kate.

I am the owner of Asphalt Canvas Custom Art LLC where I work professionally as an artist, illustrator, and pinstriper from my studio located in Central Texas.

I am the creator of är təˈ mō-tiv™ art, my signature method for making custom art using automotive paint (originally designed for painting actual cars) on canvas or metal panels.

I specialize in taking your story and artistically transforming it into a vibrant, heirloom-quality painting or hand painted graphic.

    We've had Kate come out twice to do work at the historic Stonewall Motor Lodge. She's wonderful and easy to work with, a great collaborator to create custom pieces, and a super talented artist. She's known for her car and vintage inspired art, but she is equally talented at doing anything. Can't recommend her enough!

    I so enjoyed the whole process and completeness of your talent… You captured Cheri and I, while making a story come to canvas.  Wonderful.

    We are overwhelmed with excitement at the beautiful job Kate did bringing our concept to life and making it even better than we could have imagined. We're looking forward to seeing our guests interact with the mural over the years to come! THANK YOU KATE!

    I was speechless for roughly 30 minutes straight. Not only is it absolutely beautiful and so much more than I ever expected, it’s baffling to me that someone could paint that. I just wanted to say hanging this painting is going to be very difficult because I want everyone who comes into my home to see it. You are pretty damn amazing at what you do, Kate! I am glad I had the honor to work with you on this. Thank you.

    We really loved working with Kate! She is so understanding and listens to your ideas. Then to see them put together into something so good is amazing! She designed a logo for our garage in Sweden, and it turned out so much better than we ever could imagine!

    From the bottom of my heart I can not thank you enough!! The pictures do not do this justice. Its beyond perfect and you were an absolute pleasure to work with through all of this!!!!  My mom was speechless as well. She wanted me to say thank you so much you did an amazing job honoring her late husband. Back when he passed, he asked me to promise him that I would enjoy and show the car off in his honor; I feel like I'm holding up to that promise now!

    Blown Away! I cannot not even begin to describe my joy at your artwork. Photographs do not do the gold flake justice. You did an amazing job. Immense gratitude for this collaboration have my ideas and your amazing skills. I can't wait to put this old guitar together.

    Thank you again for so much leg work, hard work and more importantly, the creative passion you put into making this a reality for me. I knew I picked the right person when I saw on your IG feed that you had learned a lot about Lady Liberty. Speaks very highly that you did some research on her. Most would just snag a photo or two and draw something. You too extra steps and effort and it truly shows!

    I reached out to Kate in need of an eye-catching logo. There was no guessing along the way. After giving her my ideas, she blew it out of the park with three great logo concepts - it was hard to choose which to run with! She was very responsive and easy to work with as she refined the logo based on my comments to exactly what I had envisioned - clean and striking!

    I reached out to Kate with an urgent need to have my logo created within 24 hours and she rocked the hell out of it!! The logo was better than I imagined!! She keeps constant communication to make sure she is creating the exact design you need. Her work ethic is only exceeded by her brilliant creativity! I am honored to say my logo was created by Asphalt Canvas Custom Art!

    "My wife loves it!!!! She held it for about an hour last night, before I hung it on the wall. It is amazing! It is truly a family heirloom we will cherish forever."
