Artist Statement

My works represent a combination of academic studies, cultural experiences and creative thoughts.  Drawing on my broad experiences, I am inspired by some of history’s greatest minds:  Romare Bearden, Dr. Martin Luther King and Cornell West.  This fusion of individuals has led to an artist journey grounded in social commentary.  I strive to illustrate the chaos associated with our minds and culture while juxtaposing powerful and often offensive symbols in an aggressive pursuit of the truth.  This pursuit of the truth aims to challenge the viewer in an attempt to stretch their spiritual beliefs and secular norms.  I am not here to change beliefs.  I instead crave an enlightened state where by questioning reality is acceptable.  Can we look beyond our mundane current state in order to ask:  Why?  Believing strongly in self-interpretation, I invite the viewer to experience the works through their own interpretation.  Every work has a detailed explanation behind its creation however I prefer to observe the transformative power of why.  We never Are, we’re always in the state of Becoming” – Dr. MLK Jr.

  • I just wanted to take a moment to thank you all for the wonderful day our group had on 1/25. Kayla was patient, compassionate and flexible with our teens and provided all of us with a meaningful experience. We have never seen our teens so intent and engaged! Our group members could hardly wait to show parents their work, and the pride was palpable. From all of the assistance with setting up, to Jesse's welcoming and professional attitude, to Kayla's energetic instruction, everyone felt happy and successful in ways we have never experienced. We look forward to returning in the future, and have shared our very positive feedback with the parents and families! Many, many thanks again!

  • "Thank you so very much for this lovely note - we agree Khayla is awesome and we are lucky to have her. At the risk of giving her a big head, I am including her on my response to you and we look forward to seeing you back again soon. Please keep an eye on the public calendar as Khayla teaches many classes and you don't want to miss her."

  • "I participated in my first painting party with Khayla A on Thursday, 4/23 (Girlfriends Unite) and loved every minute of it! I was impressed with the location, atmosphere, music, finished painting, the whole team, and especially Khayla A! Khayla A is an AWESOME instructor--she is friendly, fun, talented, and made painting an enjoyable experience for me. I will come back again and be sure to request Khayla A as the instructor."
