My Bio
I have tried different techniques throughout my life, but I especially fell in love with bright acrylic paints. Every artwork is the result of long painting process; every canvas is born during the creative search; every painting is full of my inner world. Each of my paintings brings different moods, colors and emotions. I love to express the beauty, harmony and spirit of this world in my paintings. My heart is completely open to art. Thus, I enjoy creating inspired and beautiful paintings from the bottom of my soul. Each of my artworks reflects my feelings, sensitivity, passion, and the music from my soul. True art is alive and inspired by humanity. I believe that art helps us to be free from aggression and depression.

I was born in Victoria, B.C. of Canada in 1992. Since a very young age I was immersed in making artwork. My preferred craft today has narrowed to drawing and painting although my interest and artistic influences have greatly broadened over the years. I have many loves in my life but creating art will always enrich my soul like nothing else can. I am very passionate about my work!

I have many pleased commissioners from around the world including Canada, The United States, and Australia. Please browse my gallery if you search for inner inspiration!

Painting Tips from Kyla Nichole!

Painting Tips from Kyla Nichole!

Keep the brush light, don't push it into the canvas. That's the easiest way to get a smooth stroke, and it comes with practice. Also water is very helpful for blending, but be careful not to overload or your painting may appear washed out or "thin". For shadowing/ blending colours, when you want to achieve a brighter more saturated effect, don't use BLACK to blend down in hue, instead use another colour such as a dark red, or a purple, or dark blue.. depending on what you're painting of course! :) Also, develop your own method of layering/ steps to a finished painting. What I usually do is sketch on a pad of paper my ideas, and design from
