Meet Abstract Artist, Kay Reinke

Art has been a part of her life since she began painting at the age of 12, when she began studying at The Houston Museum of Fine Art and the Texas Art Institute. The daughter of a journalist, who was also a cartoonist for the Army newspaper during WW II, she was always encouraged in her artistic efforts. As an adult, left brain and right brain activities took parallel paths with mathematics and art.  This unusual pairing has proven to be a benefit in many areas, including perspective and proportions. Currently she divides her studio time between Canyon Lake, Texas and China Spring, Texas.

Painting has always been an exciting endeavor for her. The mixing of creamy paints and the application of vibrant colors provide a sensual experience. She wants her paintings to suggest encounters and feelings in a way that sparks viewers’ imagination.

Kay Reinke's training and unique experiences, along with extensive range of influences, have resulted in a vitality and richness in her paintings. Her many awards as well as her enthusiastic collectors are evidence of her success. It is her belief that art is evidence of God’s willingness to let us share with him in the expression of the beauty and majesty of our world.

Meet Artist, Judy Crowe

I love the works of the Old Masters but the Impressionist painters are the painters I most admire for their vibrant use of color and their individual brushwork.  As it did for the impressionists, everyday subjects inspire me.  I love flowers and landscapes and appreciate the beauty of nature.  It’s quite a challenge to capture the feel of a time or place on canvas rather than a photo representation. 

I’ve been featured in several national artists publications and have won many awards but while those honors are nice, the best reward ~ for me as an artist ~ is when a collector purchases a piece of work.  My hope and goal is to add lasting value to the world we live in and perhaps capture a part of God’s wonderful creation to canvas.
