About Kayla King

Kayla King is an abstract painter living and working in California. With the mountains and sea both at her doorstep, her work is largely influenced by motion: physical landscape, energy, and sound all playing a large role in what is eventually translated to the finished piece. Stories are told in overlapping layers and marks, creating a visual language that seeks to express a moment or memory suspended in time.

Hey Kayla, I'm so sorry about that! I know I've seen your desktop dowload recently but I didn't bother to look back at it when I created mine to make sure it was different. I really didn't mean to rip you off like that, I'll take it down now. :(
