Kyle Ma

Photo of Kyle MaKyle Ma was born in the year 2000 and developed a love of nature during his childhood. He was drawn to art at an early age and says that painting allows him to express his viewpoint of our world. In 2010, Kyle moved with his family to Austin, Texas where he continues to pursue his love and affection for art. He enjoys painting En plein air since it allows him to be immersed in the landscape during the progress of creating. Currently, Kyle is also pursuing his passion of nature by studying Geosciences at the University of Texas at Austin. Kyle believes it reinforces the idea of making careful observations and seeking to understand these observations, a skill Kyle feels is extremely important in art. Kyle is a Signature Member of Oil Painters of America and a member of Salmagundi Club, Laguna Plein Air Painters Association and American Impressionist Society. "Painting, to me, is an extremely passionate experience. I paint as much as I can, and hope that I can communicate with the viewer what I saw and how I felt each time that I pick up a brush."
