Kay's love of the arts began early when she was selected to paint a mural at her elementary school. Since that time, she has explored many different mediums which include watercolour, oil, acrylic and more recently stone, clay and bronze sculpting.

Kay has been painting for many years, experimenting first with Chinese watercolour and progressed to abstract expressionism in acrylics and mixed media. She is fascinated by the different properties of all these mediums, from the transparency of watercolours and the vibrancy of acrylics to the aliveness of stone and strenght of bronze.

By integrating the natural beauty of stone with the strenght of metal, her contemporary figurative sculptures appear to come alive, imbued with fluidity and movement. Kay's interest in the art of sculpting has evolved from contemporary figurative to abstract figurative.

Kay feels honoured to be a participant in a creative, artistic world filled with dreams, imagination, inspiration and magic.

Artist Statement

Art is a universal language transcending country, culture and custom. To those who are attuned, art speaks to their heart and feeds their soul. I work with bronze, a metal which appears solid/strong and acrylic paints which are soft/flowing; each attracts with their own beautiful oratory. Sculptures appeal to the tactile, visual senses and, like original paintings, both appeal to the longing within us, whatever that may be. I create through images of form and colour and would like to share this with you in the hope of taking you, if just for a moment, to a place where beauty resides within all of us.
