About Me

My name is Ashton Scheideman, but online I usually go by Akatix or to friends, simply Akat.

I’m a proud Canadian artist, focusing on my Needle Felting but dabbling in illustration and pixel animations as well. My favourite subjects are imagined creatures, anything full of creativity and colour. Feral monsters from an artistic brain and the species of great communities!

Happily married to my favourite dork on the planet since 2019, we share a artistically crafty home together with 4 cats we adore more than anything. When not creating, we enjoy Jeep adventures into the mountains and kayaking on every lake and river we can find. Comfy couch nights curled up with a game are just as welcome though.


Introducing my mascot, Akat! She’s a representation of myself and my work. She is always welcome to be drawn in either of her three forms; Raccoon, cat, or human. Please tag
