Kaelyn Provost is an emerging artist from Houston, Texas, who recently acquired her BFA degree in Studio Art. Throughout the years of experimenting with dry, wet, and digital mediums, she favors developing her skills with oil pastels, oil painting and fabric manipulation. Oil pastels offer her the comfort of drawing with painterly textures as she continues to discover her painting style. Additionally, her recent exploration with fabric further captures the vibrancy and abstract nature seen in her 2D work, with the intention to source sustainable materials. Working with multiple mediums has further enhanced her way of expression, broadening her visual storytelling. These techniques assist her in depicting the beauty in the black feminine experience, emphasizing emotional validation, connections, and wellness on a soul level.
In 2022, she curated and showcased work in three exhibitions: The Black Contemporary, Texas State University, San Marcos, TX; Spare Rooms Exhibition, Online; Lucid Escapades, TXST Galleries, San Marcos, TX. She also showcased work in Volya: A Silent Auction with DORF in Austin, TX.
In 2021, Provost was selected to showcase with Boomer Gallery in London.
