One of my favourite shots of the newly formulated @katvondbeauty Studded Kiss Lipstick in “White Out.”
This is a highly pigmented pure white that I like to use by itself for more editorial/avant garde lip looks, or as a mixing medium with other shades. #studdedkiss #katvondbeauty #crueltyfree #vegan

In the meantime here’s a behind-the-scenes corset shot from the filming of the @IAMX music video for “Stardust!”

For the past 4 months, I’ve been working so hard on this video for @katvondbeauty’s 10 Year Anniversary collection launch and it’s almost done being edited. I wanted to tell the story of @katvondbeauty through 10 of my modern-day muses. Some whom you may already know and others that you should! These 10 muses have blessed me with so much inspiration, not just for their surface beauty but with what they contribute to the world through their art. AND I CANT WAIT FOR YOU GUYS TO MEET THESE MUSES AND SEE THE FULL VIDEO SOON! [this campaign + makeup collection is launching on @katvondbeauty this May!]
From my black garden: BLACK “CHOCOLATE SOLDIER” COLUMBINE [aquilegia viridiflora] Columbines belong in the buttercup family, and sadly are not particularly long-lived. Most of them die within two years, but fortunately grow easily from seed. #gothgardening #blackgarden #blackflower #blackthumb #casavond
From my black garden: PANDA-FACE “LING LING” GINGER FLOWER [asarum maximum] Zoom in on this photo and note the velvety texture of the petals! This flower is not culinary ginger, but referred to as “ginger” for its scent when crushed. #gothgardening #blackgarden #blackflower #blackthumb #casavond
From my black garden: BLACK ADDER “SOOTY” FLOWER [dianthus barbatus nigrescens] These black beauties are super easy to grow from seed. They come from the Carnation family, but in miniature form. As you can see, mine is just now starting to blossom, but soon the entire cluster will be exploding with these little black blooms! #gothgardening #blackflower #blackgarden #blackthumb #casavond
About 4 years ago or so, the noise of modern day life felt all too overwhelming.
At that time I had been celibate for a couple of years, and was consumed by the singular purpose of creating - through my drawing, writing, music, design, gardening, and passion for architecture.
I decided I wanted to disappear.
The idea of disappearing wasn’t reactive to anything other than a selfish/profound need to consistently create without interruption or distraction.
I discovered this isolated castle in Spain. Originally built in the 1500’s, it was in complete ruins when I first found it, and since then have been rebuilding it in a self-sustaining fashion [solar, wind, geothermal powered]. Over the years of rebuilding this beautiful castle, I learned about the urgency of fighting for animal rights [and in turn our environment] and resolved to stay here in the US to try and make the most impact as possible through my activism. None the less, this castle will be a lovely safe-haven to eventually create in and retire to when the time is right. #castlevond
It is a lucky honour to have been born on #InternationalWomensDay.
FUN FACT: My entire @katvondbeauty team is made up of 98% women - all of which I’ve learned so much from over this last decade. So, having surrounded myself with some of the most intelligent, talented, and creatively motivated women in my work life, March 8 is a day to consciously celebrate them [alongside all the other inspiring women + feminists out there]. ♀️♀️♀️♀️♀️
*I won’t be able to tag all 61 women currently working behind @katvondbeauty in this post - but ladies - please know I love you!
Spending time with Bruno and all the beautiful animals at @farmsanctuary makes me even more grateful for being #vegan and standing up for #animalrights.
[a huge THANK YOU to @farmsanctuary for making yet another birthday so memorable.] #animalliberationishumanliberation #someonenotsomething
While I was away on tour, @prayers got my full name tattooed on his face for my birthday. As if i needed another reason to love him...
[Aside from when Lemmy was alive, the only other person I like calling me “Katherine” is my husband, @prayers.] #andthebesthusbandawardgoesto #bestbirthdayever
