Featured Artists

Kaili was born in Utah but Saline has been her home for the past 20 years. She began drawing and painting at an early age and always knew she wanted to be an artist. The focus on technique demonstrated in classical art led her to develop a representational style in her work. She gains inspiration from the natural beauty observed in nature, people, and especially wildlife. She holds a BFA, with a concentration in painting and drawing, from the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan and studied figure drawing and fresco painting at SACI College of Art and Design in Florence, Italy. 

Her recent work is inspired by her passion for animals. Her drawings capture the unique personalities of each species in her favorite mediums: pastels, charcoal, oil, and colored pencils. Charcoal allows me to create with the precision that defines my animal compositions. This medium allows me to explore a range of values and mark making. I am also drawn to pastels because they allow me to create from a vibrant, rich palette.

During the creative process, “I feel a deep connection to the essence of these amazing creatures. My hope is to bring attention to wildlife preservation and to help the viewer consider their relationship to nature.”
