Kylee is a developing artist working and living in Louisville, Kentucky. She is a senior at Bellarmine University double majoring in Art Education and Art (Sculpture and Extended Media). Kylee was awarded Best in Show for her piece “Back to Our Roots” and Most Outside the Box for her “Hanging Planters” for the 2018 Bellarmine University Annual Student Art Show. In the previous year, she was awarded Best 3D piece for her “Ceramic Color Wheel” in the Bellarmine University Student Art Show.
Kylee has traveled to many different countries and volunteered on mission trips. As a student at Assumption High School, Kylee spent a week in Managua Nicaragua building a house for a local family. She remembers visiting local pottery studios and being fascinated by the cross-culture similarities and differences of art making. Drawing inspiration from the scenery in Nicaragua, she enjoys creating environmental earthen works. As a junior at Bellarmine, she spent a month traveling and studying education in South Africa. Here, she made connections with local artists, strengthening her interest in human interaction and different cultures.
Upon graduation, Kylee plans to continue to coach, create ceramic and sculptural work, teach, and eventually continue her education further to receive an MFA (Master of Fine Arts).
