**About the Artist**

Artist Bio

     I am Kay. I do not own a single piece of clothing that does not have paint on it. I love capturing the world around me with a quick movement of my hand. This may mean that I am drawing strangers in a cafe, painting a couple sitting on a park bench, or capturing the beauty of nature in a creative way. No matter what is means my hand is always moving, my mind is always zooming, and I am always creating.

      I am based out of Western MA and teach middle school art in Springfield. I love encouraging young minds and hope to inspire future artists. Art is healing, therapeutic, and beautiful.

     As John Singer Sargent says, “ You can’t do sketches enough. Sketch everything and keep your curiosity fresh.” Follow along my daily sketching and painting journey on Instagram: ArtByMissK

     Happy creating everyone!
