She incorporates fabric, textiles, jewelry design, sculpture, and painting into a colorful eclectic practice that seeks to inspire others to acknowledge their inherent creative spirit. A self-taught artist, she rejects the rules and notions of fine art in a vibrant juxtaposition of figuration and abstraction with an emphasis on textured visceral works.

While art had always fascinated Kecia, she discovered her talents when she relocated from her California home to coastal New Jersey. While building her new life, she took to engaging with craft, design, and the visual arts to transform her living space into a wonderland of her own creation. Spending most of her days as a caregiver, her art became an outlet. Embracing the unusual, she continued to expand her practice. She was met with a positive response as others fell in love with the imaginative worlds she invited them to explore. As her acclaim grew, she became a world traveler, uplifting artists around the globe with her art and drawing from their rich cultures and experiences to inform her work and evolving practice. Today, she is sharing her journey, skills, and motivation with others as an educator.
