Kay lives and works in Mission Hills, San Diego. She has a passion for color, animals and nature, and works with oil on canvas.
Artist statement: I pull inspiration from beautiful San Diego urban areas, to our vibrant coast line and recently re-introduced to our Southern California surrounding deserts. My work has evolved in the past 12 years and may include a touch of realism and abstract to my impressionistic style. Painting brings joy and focus in an almost meditative state. My hope is that the enthusiasm and gratitude I feel to have painting in my life shines through with each artwork I create. My husband was the catalyst and inspiration to the whole idea of painting for me . In 2004 he met a husband and wife artist while on a surf trip, and a couple years later I began drawing classes with each of them through the Atheneum School for the Arts. I soon discovered Impressionist Alla Prima classes and completely fell in love with oil painting . Since then I have had years of classes, intensive workshops and travel for plein air workshops .
I paint almost daily in my home studio and enjoy painting with friends through classes and travel.
