Kay lives and works in her Richmond, California home studio where she paints and prints monotypes. She exhibits regularly and her work is in numerous private collections. She received her Bachelor's degree in Art from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
My work is experimental and process orientated. It explores themes of memory, impermanence, and the relationship between opposites: order versus chaos, structure versus gesture, and line versus form.
I create mixed media paintings and monotypes using acrylics, oils, pastels, inks, collage and various drawing items. I try to develop levels of meaning by building and/or removing layers of paint, ink, paper and other materials. Each piece has its own history, which is partially revealed through various layers. They become a personal language of animated marks. They are images and marks contained in layers of space and time.
