Kay is a painter and printmaker with a passionate interest in the natural environment. Her practice is reflective of her life in Margaret River with many of the regions native birds and animals featuring in her work. The subtle gouache images are painted onto Hahnemuhle paper that Kay has embossed with local plants to create a textured backdrop. The role of fire and regeneration is emulated by her use of fumage, a technique that deposits the smoke and soot from a candle onto the paper giving the work an ethereal appearance.
