Hi! My name is Kal. I'm an artist and it's not my job - it's my way of life. I work in all sorts of media - from gouache to watercolour - from tea stains to Adobe Illustrator. I think in images + I feel in paint. I drink black coffee, chase unicorns and dream about polar bears.
This is a collection of my life. I have three beautiful daughters, two french bulldogs and a great guy to adventure with. I work hard. I believe in pouring yourself into the things you love + sharing your authentic self.
I don't just love what I do... I do what I love.
