KAY REINKE
contemporary art

KayReinkeArt.com
The daughter of a journalist, who was also a cartoonist for the Army newspaper during WWII, she was always encouraged in her artistic efforts. The abstract nature of her paintings allows for the viewers of the piece to put her or himself in the scene or imagery in a way that doesn’t restrict the viewer’s to a single location or time in their life. She wants her paintings to suggest experiences and feelings in a way that sparks viewers’ imaginations, draws them into the paintings and makes them want to stay.

KIM MERCK – MOORE
mixed media art
arteccentrics.com
Her work you see at the market evolved from a fierce need to create and to tell viewers a story. The many layers so essential to her work each tell a part, whether as a curve of a branch, a secret path behind a tree or a nest of eggs hidden in a secret drawer. As a native Texan, she grew up with a forest behind her home and spent her childhood playing and imagining amongst the trees. The Secret Garden was her favorite book as a child, and plays heavily in all of her work. While she studied psychology in college art is the profession that really stirs her soul.
