Kit Collins is a public artist, muralist and illustrator based in Medford, MA. Across all of her projects, Kit prioritizes opportunities to create large-scale, site-specific, public-facing works that celebrate, spotlight, and honor the social, natural, and creative environments in which they are implemented. She strives to create works that will not only add beauty, color and texture to the everyday visual environment, but will also meaningfully resonate with the communities that host them. 


Kit has lived in the greater Boston area since 2011, when she moved from upstate New York to attend Tufts University. She graduated with a degree in Peace & Justice Studies, concentrating in environmental justice and the role of art in social change movements. As a freelancer, Kit has eagerly embedded in the greater Cambridge and Boston arts scenes through community organizing, group shows, creative organizations, collaborations, and mural-assisting other artists. During the COVID-19 pandemic Kit began to invest her time in local mutual aid and civic work, and since 2021 has been serving as a City Councilor in Medford. She splits her time between her art life and her political life, seeking balance and respite from one in the other.  

Kit has created public art for communities throughout the Northeast, including Roslindale Village, MA; Pawtucket, RI; Lowell, MA; and Hampton, NH. Illustration is her other main creative offering, collaborating with brands and nonprofits including the Charles River Regional Chamber, Conservation Law Foundation, and ButcherBox. Between commissions, Kit enjoys developing new concepts for walls, collaborations, and designing irreverent zines and stickers.

Client Testimonials

"Kit is an amazing and professional artist. She communicates clearly, provides everything that is contracted, and creates delightful art. I would recommend her to anyone, without hesitation. The experience of having a mural created by Kit has been only positive." –Amanda R., mural client

"Kit is an incredible artist who went above and beyond to bring our vision to life. Kit did a mural in our nursery that we get to share and teach our baby girl about. The way she incorporated both mom & dad's details speaks volumes to her creativity. We love showing off our custom mural to all of our new parent friends!" –Tina J., mural client

"From start to finish Kit was responsive, professional and creative. I chose her from 7 other artists and I made the right decision. First we worked together on concept. We went back and forth on design. Kit was able to both bring in the concepts that I wanted as well as make suggestions that I could not begin to contemplate... Kit stayed to schedule (working outside is not easy) and in the end I had a product that EXCEEDED expectations. My mural, a city of Boston scene is colorful, detailed and stunningly beautiful... I hope to hire her again." –Dave M., mural client

"She is impeccably thorough and handled my overly-detailed tweaks very professionally; I can tell she is a perfectionist... Kit was truly a pleasure to work with and I will certainly recommend her to anyone who needs graphic design/illustration work." –Patrick B., custom illustration client
