Kay Vinson is well known for her vibrantly colored geometric abstracts. Vinson's art has been greatly influenced by her many travels, particularly to Asia, and by her fascination with urban life and artifacts. She weaves together a love of shape, color, texture and movement to create mixed media paintings which invite the viewer to look beyond their apparent simplicity into a world of subtle nuance.
Kay grew up in Birmingham, Alabama, moved to Chicago, then to California and then on to Memphis. She has now come full circle back to Birmingham where she works as a dedicated professional artist. Kay studied art at Cabrillo College in Aptos, California and at San Jose State University. In San Francisco, she did two years of intensive study of the creative process with the internationally respected painter and teacher, Michele Cassou. Vinson's work has won numerous awards and it can be found in prominent collections across the US and Canada. And France.
My work allows me to combine my interest in photography, Zen, and street art with the fun of spreading paint on canvas.
