"The world always seems brighter when you just made something that wasn't there before"

- Neil Gaiman



to Ali Kay Studio

I’m a painter of all things, but I really enjoy creating natural scenes and capturing the beauty in people. I have had a paint brush in my hand since I was a toddler. I know that artists find their creative voice at all different stages in life. For me, I knew from the very beginning that this is what I was made to do. It took a bit longer to come to the realization that I was also created to share this gift by teaching others. It's a blessing to encourage other artists and give them the tools they need to paint work that they are proud of.
