"Kay is a thinking artist, whose gift is in seeing the world in a different way. A new way. Her way. The superimpositions of coloured chords transform the experience of material in to intellect. Her creative spirit turns the world upside down as she imprints her unique voice in its playfulness, creating stunning fields of bright kaleidoscopic colour that, arranged in a pattern, project from the wall, onto you, networking your space.”
Estelle Lovatt, art critic & broadcaster 2011 Art of England Magazine , September 2011

Kay’s initial success culminated in a sell-out solo show – “Fifty Experiments, One Love” in 2004. Her major work to date consists of 500 oil paintings featured at Focus 2006, Chelsea Design and World of Interior Magazine. The work took over 2 1⁄2 years to complete and subsequently sold out as a rearranged show “Perception Altered” in 2007 exhibited at The Cork Street Gallery. A multimedia presentation accompanied this show which was shown separately at The Polish Underground Festival 2007. The installation “Passions, Possessions, Repetitions” (2005) is currently on show at The Polish Cultural Institute, London.In 2009 Kay was invited to show “Passionate Curiosity About Blue”, a 248 painting Installation - 40 ft. long – during the Miami Basel season.
