Featured Artist 2017 - Kay Dee Powell
Born in the southern tip of Texas, Kay Dee Powell is a long way from her roots. A classroom teacher in CA for thirty years, she taught multiple subjects including art. Retirement and a move to Blaine, WA found her awestruck by the pristine beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Finally there was time to satisfy her desire to paint. She began with watercolor, then acrylics, studying under local and national artists. Powell’s colorful paintings reflect her spirited enthusiasm and love of creation. Her silk paintings are the result of the tutelage of international master silk painter, Karen Sistek. Powell has been a presenter in art shows for several years. You can see her work displayed at establishments in Blaine, at her booth in the Whatcom Art Market in Bellingham, or at Kay Dee’s Artistry on Facebook. Her poem reflects her passion.
