I am thrilled to be able to share the joys of art with everyone who walks through the door! I have been an artist forever, in one form or another. I started with dance and then theater, the visual art was only for myself as a therapy and to give me something to do with all this energy. It wasn't until later in life that I started to pursue it more seriously. Since then, I have done lots of disc golf designs for tournaments and businesses, some of which had a world stage. I have also sold quite a few paintings. I am grateful for all the opportunities that have come my way and am excited for more. Hope to paint with you soon!

Hi! My name is Kaylee, I moved to Gainesville from Miami in 2016 and have fallen in love with the city ever since! I graduated with my Associates in Fine Art from Santa Fe College in 2018. Ever si nce I could hold a pen I remember drawing anything that interested me. Currently, my favorite subject is animals. In addition to working here at PWAT I do pet portraits which perfectly appeals to my love for animals and art! I am so grateful to have this artistic talent that I can share with others in hopes of bringing joy to their life. Come paint with me at PWAT, so I can put a smile on your face!

I am a local Gainesville artist that specializes in commissioned pet portraits and animal artwork! I enjoy painting with acrylics and mixed media, and love to paint on repurposed materials. My background is in animal science and I have had various jobs working with animals before becoming a full time artist. I am very passionate about helping animals, and volunteer my time helping local shelters and rescues, along with creating fundraising opportunities that help animal organizations in our community!
