Portrait of the artist being impossibly suave in a stranger's kitchen.

Portrait of the artist being impossibly suave in a stranger's kitchen.

 

Violet Louisa Austerlitz

is a queer, trans artist, printmaker, and cartoonist (sometimes all at once). She likes making up new worlds and telling stories about monsters, and identity, and the ways we relate to things we don’t understand (gender, culture, robots, etc). She is ambivalent about her formal education (BA Theatre, Truman State University, 2011), but is eternally delighted to be part of a community of artists (in the Iowa City Press Co-Op) who learn something new every day.
