Kayla L Prigg is a fine artist who grew up in Buffalo New York. She currently works as a hairdresser while moving along to get her masters in art education. Her plan is to continually learn and get better at art while finding new ways to express herself as well as helping the new generations explore and express themselves. A big part of that is to be always open to learning new things and always doing. Right now she mainly works in oils and acrylics but plans to find more and more ways to create amazing artwork.
“When people see my work I hope it evokes emotion and makes them think about the world, about life, and about others.” Most of her work has focused on emotional topics such as family and bullying. “I like to paint about things that are relatable and yet distant.” She also wants to paint about things that might not be thought about often but are extremely important in changing the way we view others and how we view ourselves.
Kayla has exhibited work at SUNY Fredonia in 2019 for the WM’s Exhibition in the SUNY Fredonia Mason Music Hall, in 2020 for The Show: Visions, at the SUNY Fredonia Williams Center, and in 2021 at SUNY Fredonia's Emmitt Christian Gallery. In 2020 she also participated at HallWalls Contemporary Art Center for their 46th Annual Members Exhibition in Buffalo NY. The Buffalo Art Wall is an online gallery where her work is currently showcased as well.
