Kyndall Rainey is a mixed media artist based in Oklahoma City. She studied fiber art at the Kansas City Art Institute before completing her B.A. in Art Education at University of Central Oklahoma. Currently she showcases her artwork in various galleries and festivals across Oklahoma and is the middle school art teacher at Crossings Christian School. Much of Kyndall’s work focuses on nature, conversation, and personal identity, and she often works with paints, fibers, and found materials. Her love for various mediums allows her to create colorful textured paintings.
Nature is a great storyteller. Even the simplest leaf can speak to storms weathered, seasons past and even of new life coming. The more time I spend in nature, the more I understand about surviving the storms in my own life.
As I create, I want to share the ethereal feeling I get when I make the connection between my own life and the resilience of nature. As I mix various mediums and materials, I often find a harmonious interaction between them. It’s the process of creating that always reminds me of the peace I found when I was near the ocean or by my favorite tree. Even though there will always be storms in life, I find positivity in the constant recreation of nature and the process of reflecting that beauty in my work.
Kyndall's work was in our Fall 2018 Group Exhibition, September-November, 2018.
