Hi! I’m Kyndall Owens, a visual artist born and raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia. In 2013, I moved to Raleigh, North Carolina, which is where I currently reside. Art has always been a passion of mine. I started off doodling on the walls at home to doodling in class and church, which led to me basically bringing my sketchbook everywhere I went. I would give out drawings to random people, and I always enjoyed the smiles and reactions I got from sharing my art.
Seeing the joy my art has brought to others is the reason I started seriously pursuing my deep passion for creating. While I am a “self-taught” artist, I would prefer to call myself a God-taught artist. I believe God put this gift in me to create pieces with the purpose of bringing joy and happiness to others when they encounter my work. Over the years, I have had experiences with numerous mediums of art, but I have found that acrylic and oil pieces are my niche. I paint various pieces ranging from portraits to sceneries to abstracts to animals... You name it!
2017 is the year I decided to start taking my art seriously, and since then, I have gotten tons of exposure. My art has been featured in calendars, news articles, the Marbles Museum, the Black Friday Market, the Museum Barbershop, Good Trip Gallery, and more. Also, I have also been recognized by celebrities, including Mo' Nique, Jhene Aiko, Dwayne Wade, Toosii, Swae Lee, D.K. Metcalf, Tamela Mann, Russ, and Lil Baby, and I pray for many more to come! I also do custom work, host paint classes & live paintings, and much more. I’m thrilled to see where my passion for art takes me!
