2012 MSAA Art Showcase Entrants
Khayli Heijkoop – Tallahassee, FL
Through painting and drawing, I wish to invoke my ultimate respect to the myriad of forms in my minds eye in which beauty and innocence dwell. In my opinion, beauty is always within the heart and eye of the individual. I try to remember to keep an open heart to the yet unseen or unknown.
I traveled extensively throughout childhood living in the Far East and Europe after leaving the United States at the age of two. My exposure to the world and art inspired my passion to express myself as I see humanity and the world we live in.
The joy and freedom of expression that is my artistry is really my attempt at understanding what feeds my own soul. It is what inspires and drives me today.
