Kay attended an art school in her area under the direction of Dianne Norman. Kay began working in pastels and then later came to love oils. She paints mostly from photographs.
As you browse Kay's website, you will see her main emphasis is pet portraiture. Animals are a special part of her life and it gives her great satisfaction to be able to paint them. In each oil painting she tries to capture the pet's personality and likeness as well as their pride of belonging to those who love them.
Kay also enjoys painting landscapes and still lifes. Her landscapes are from nearby places around Mississippi and places throughout the United States and Italy. Her passion is to paint the richness of color that nature provides by using a simple brush and palette and applying that to her canvas.
Kay lives in Madison, Mississippi with her husband Al and their Norwich terrier, Ruddy. She continues to advance her art skills by taking art lessons and workshops.
