Kayla Newnam is known for her whimsical patterns and bright colors. She grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and got a BFA in Painting from Pratt Institute of Art and Design in Brooklyn, NY. This has informed her work greatly by mixing a diverse color palette with a psycho-desert landscape. Newnam currently works in Scottsdale, Arizona as a Public Art Event Coordinator which has largely influenced her desire to create artworks that are accessible to everyone. She now creates murals and community-based projects around Arizona and beyond.
