Our Story

THE ARTIST

Kayla was raised in paradise, known to many as Southern California. Since she was a child, Kayla shared a special connection with the environment. She found herself continually drawn to the complex interactions between flora and fauna found throughout her surroundings. 

Determined to learn more, Kayla went on to pursue her interest in the natural world at the University of Arizona, where she later graduated with a bachelors in Environmental Science in 2017. However, upon returning back to the coast, Mikayla felt as if she lost a huge part of herself along the way. Determined to rediscover her spark, Kayla turned to art for affirmation. With little to no formal training, Kayla brushed and poured her way towards uncovering her signature style.

As a 100% self-taught artist, Kayla learned to translate these very same environmental complexities she studied throughout her academic career into free-flowing, sophisticated works of art using just raw canvas, acrylics and resin. While most of her work is abstract, kayla draws her inspiration from the flow of water and geologic features found just steps from her studio in Laguna Beach. The result- artworks that evoke a sense of serenity and familiarity found naturally in response to our peaceful surroundings.
