Kayla Hanson is a painter born and raised in Idaho and is heavily inspired by the beauty of the natural environment. She received her bachelor’s in fine art with an emphasis on painting from Boise State university in 2021. Kayla works with oil paint and loves the action of pushing and pulling paint, and the interactions of brush work with impasto paint. She is influenced by the interaction of light and color in the natural world, experiences, and the meaning of unravelling one’s unique interpretations of memories of “place”. Kayla has shown work in exhibitions locally and regionally since 2016.
