Kate Bingaman Burt is an illustrator, an Assistant Professor and the co-program coordinator of graphic Design at Portland State University. She is an ambassador for indie-craft culture, and she’s really fun to be around. Kate led the CreativeMornings Portland lecture series with a talk that inspires us to get out there and make something great. She says, "You've gotta have the kind of burning desire in your stomach to do it." We agree.
