Kyle is originally from Baird, Tx. He graduated from Hardin Simmons University in Abilene, with a BFA in Photography. He belonged to the Big Country Art Association, and worked in the Painting with a Twist studio in Abilene while going to school. Kyle moved to Lubbock in September 2017 and started working with us as an Instructor/artist. He loves to paint and combine that with photography. He also paints using encaustics, which for us non-artsy people, that is painting with wax! Kyle says he began finger-painting at the young age of 1 year and not much of his technique has changed. His favorite thing about being an instructor at PWAT is getting to have daily “paint parties”, and teaching people that YES, you can paint! He wants our guests to always be relaxed and calm. take deep breaths, and don’t be stressed while painting. (He agrees that sips of wine helps with that relaxation as well). In his spare time, Kyle loves to read a good book, and always loves to go exploring in nature. He hopes you will join his classes, and have some paint fun!
