BioKay Lewis is a native of north Alabama. She currently lives and maintains a studio in Madison, Alabama. Artist Statement: The subject matter in front of me is truly just the beginning. The real subject of my work is not landscape, flower or figure, but the paint on the canvas. I strive to make the paint look special or interesting while still referencing the subject. A love for impressionism steered me toward eliminating details in an effort to capture the essence of the subject with sparkle and spontaneity. Kay has studied with more than a dozen nationally known artists. She has been showing and selling her paintings for more than 20 years.
