"LOW CUT HEART" is amongst Kesha's vibrant pieces 2015

THE ARTIST

Kesha "Kiki" Broyhill has been painting for only four years. Not professionally trained, rather intuitively naturalistic in approach, her work defies categorization. It is for this reason there is a freshness and lack of contrivance in every nuanced brushstroke.

Born and raised in East Tennessee, Kesha served in the United States Armed Forces, and is the loving mother to a wonderful - and very creative little guy named Lucas - who though growing fast she still refers to as her 'midget".

Most of Kesha's pieces are for sale. To see the art up front and personal please email Kesha at: kikibroyhill@gmail.com

THE WORK

Raised in a Christian household, Kesha later became a devout Buddhist, and her Zen-like approach to content is evident within the subtext of her Art. More than a passing interest in Egyptology, deity and myth can be seen in her more representational work.

Stylistically Kesha explores textural juxtaposition, utilizing a combination of opaque and transluscent chromatic renderings that offer each piece an aesthetic resonance and subjective edge.
