Kayla is a 16 year old visual artist and fashionista from Harlem. She enjoys exploring the darker side of things, painting neon devil girls and killer aliens and zombies.

While at Art Start, she hopes to master the usage of oil paints, complete her miniseries of paintings and learn how to make digital art. In 2018 she took a pre-college digital illustration course at FIT. She is also interested in exploring acting and through Art Start is currently enrolled in an improv 101 class at Magnet Theater.
