Kylie Lakevold is a small-town B.C. born artist currently living in Calgary, AB. She has been painting, sculpting and creating mixed media works for as long as she can remember. In 1999 she attended the University of Lethbridge for her bachelors of fine arts degree and spent most of her days in the studio and learning about art history.
Concerned, that being an artist would lead her to starve in the big city, she decided to learn about multi-media production and design and spent the past 10 years working as a digital artist, brand manager and startup entrepreneur.
During her time as an entrepreneur, she struggled to find personal balance and turned to painting as a cathartic way to connect her business life and artistic self. Her abstract expressionist pieces are inspired by feelings that have been evoked by situations and experiences throughout her life.
