“Homage” by resident artist Kayla Terrell in the Galerie des Amis. A friend of River Oaks in every sense of the word, Kayla holds a B.F.A. in Studio Art from Louisiana College and went to work in the Graphic Design field, but still painted and did various projects on the side. She now works at River Oaks Square Arts Center as well as paints on a daily basis. Kayla enjoys hand-lettering of which she is self-taught, Live Event paintings, creating signs and other paintings for herself and others.
As a young child, Kayla was always creating something from “nothing.” Tissue paper, glue and popsicle sticks were some of her items of choice. She is still inspired by old, found-objects, old barns and churches and nature and enjoys working with salvaged wood pieces, cheesecloth, paint and many other textures.
