Kay lives and works in Mission Hills, San Diego. She has a passion for color, animals and nature, and works with oil on canvas.


"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."
