Artist Spotlight: Kayla Weber
Whether or not you have heard the name Kayla Weber, you most likely have seen her art sold in your local Anthropology store—where you can purchase her painted globes.
Recognized locally for her scenes that represent “all things Kentucky,” Kayla’s live painting has been featured recently downtown Louisville Derby week at the Trifecta Gala, or while visiting Keeneland painting live on the track. Originally from Lexington, Kentucky, Kayla taught elementary school for 6 years before pursuing art full time. Currently she teaches workshops, works out of her studio, and also teams up with The Barn At Springhouse.
Kayla’s art displays vibrant colors and a representation of horse culture and the quaint parts of Kentucky that locals take pride in. Kayla’s paintings as she states are inspired by “...scenes, animals, flowers and abstracts in a mixture of realism and impressionism.”
As someone not originally from Kentucky, when I look at Kayla’s prints they remind me of all the things I have grown to love about moving to this region. Earlier this summer I stopped Kayla’s studio nearby gardens and the Barn at Springhouse to meet her and choose a giveaway for my blog. For details and information on how to enter the giveaway for the “Fred” and “Bob” horse paintings go to my Instagram @theglennygirl .
Please check out all her gorgeous artwork for sale online at her website. If you live close by, please look at her schedule for upcoming classes, or book her for a live painting at your event. The Barn at Springhouse is also a lovely location for weddings or events not far from downtown Lexington.
This little trip out of Louisville proper reminded me that Kentucky is not only known nationally for bourbon and horse culture; the art and artists surrounding us set an inspiring tone for the communities and culture of this Bluegrass country. Cheers to all things Kentucky!
