Kay has been painting professionally for over 20 years. The defining moment in her career was being taken to an exhibition of work by wildlife artist David Shepherd. She recalls: “One of the paintings contained a bramble bush covered in frost. I remember standing and staring at all the many colours he had used to create the frost – I was fascinated by the blues greys and purples combining to produce that beautiful image and it was at this precise moment that I decided I wanted to become a professional artist.”
Kay lived for some years in Cyprus, but was drawn back by her longing for the flowers and wildlife of the English countryside, and she is now based in rural Cheshire.
