Meet Kyla

I am a Canadian born artist practicing in the wild Mountains of British Columbia. I have always been fascinated with the fantastical and the figurative and have been sculpting since I was a child; however I have been working in my current media since 2009. I received a degree in Art History from the University of Toronto and a diploma in Fine Art from Sheridan College. My pieces have been shown in several galleries including the Edward day Gallery, the Lennox Contemporary and Centre 64. I have created pieces for WETA Studios, McFarlane Toys, Strange Aeons and Sheridan College. I have taught both child and adult art classes at many facilities including the Barber Institute in England, the College of the Rockies and Centre 64. I often find myself producing sculptures for my illustrator contemporaries such as David Petersen (The Mouse Guard), Toren Atkinson and Marc Dos Santos. I have been featured in numerous publications including Spectrum and was the featured artist for the quarterly magazine Go Kimberley. I have been nominated for awards for my miniature sculptures for tabletop skirmish game Strange Aeons. I have won several awards for my work including the Most Promising Artist award for my graduating year and first prize at Centre 64’s Kaleidoscope exhibition in 2018.
