Kasia Tons is a textile artist living and working on Peramangk and Kaurna Country. Hand embroidery and mask making are central to her practice which sits at the intersection of art, fashion, and craft.


Photography and video have become important tools in her narrative-based works. Depicting two- and three-dimensional works within a world either real or imagined completes them.


Her process is slow and intuitive, colorful, and expressive. The labor and time invested in creating her work acts as an antidote to the fast pace of the modern world and the addictive seeking of instant gratification through digital means.


Recurring thematic interests include social impacts of digital technology use, the Anthropocene, and interpersonal/interspecies relationship dynamics.


She has exhibited nationally and internationally and has participated in residencies in Iceland, the USA, Latvia, and the Slovak Republic. The Rothko Art Centre, Latvia holds two of her pieces as part of their permanent collection and her work was selected as a finalist for the 2021 Ramsay Art Award.
