Hi, I'm Kayla...
If you can’t find me in the studio, you can find me in the woods. Growing up in the beautiful Canadian Rockies in the small town of Canmore, AB, I have been fortunate enough to be surrounded by mountains, forests and alpine lakes almost my entire life. This familiar landscape grounds me and is a constant source of inspiration.
As an individual, I thrive in the simplicity of travelling through a natural landscape. I am easily overcome by the raw beauty of the mountains, and am compelled on nearly a daily basis to express my interpretation of this beauty in the form of painting.
Painting is a huge part of my identity. I can equate it to a life-long love affair that began when I was a teenager. Having become familiar with painting techniques through experimentation alone, I am always learning, and always eager to push my ability and my imagination to the next level.
I may not have had any formal art training, but since I love learning, I completed a BSc Biology with Specialization in Ecology…
Yes, I am a nature nerd.
What inspires me?
Well, A LOT! But to name a few sources...
...Adventuring with loved ones,
Protecting wild spaces and creatures,
Celebrating our beautiful and precious planet,
Sharing the essence of Adventure and
encouraging others to responsibly GET OUTSIDE!
