Out and about Kansas City!
I specialize in painting cityscapes and Kansas City scenes. You can find me participating in local outdoor paint outs like Brush Creek Art Walk when weather allows. My collectors and I use my paintings to celebrate our home, the city that we love.
Your office needs some art!
Show some KC pride in your workplace with artwork large and small.
I have so much fun doing live painting performances for weddings and charity events! What artist doesn't love a cheering audience?!
Don't forget about home!
I make it easy for private collectors to get just the right piece for their space.
Paint and Party KC
You know I love a good party... For unusually fun and educational paint and sip style parties for your private bachelorette party or your corporate team builder, I'm your girl. I can host parties of up to 20 in my gallery or studio and I can take the show on the road if you'd like me to lead a paint and sip party in your chosen venue.
Pictured above is a corporate team builder hosted in the Kansas City Stockyards Gallery where each participant painted one section of the mural which was later hung in their office for all to enjoy and remember their fun time together.
Corporate Collections and Public Art
I share my love of my city with others through public art like pictured above. In 2017 I was commissioned to complete 11 large paintings for KU Med's permanent collection. My art can be seen throughout the city in office spaces large and small.
Kansas City Stockyards Gallery
Pictured above is an artist talk by Kelly Yarborough at Kansas City Stockyards Gallery, formerly known as Vanessa Lacy Gallery.
I own a small art gallery across the hall from my studio.
Kansas City Stockyards Gallery is open to the public Fridays 1-5 and Saturdays 11-3 and by appointment. It has opening receptions on the 3rd Fridays of each month from 5-8 pm. My mission as a gallery owner is to share beautiful and uplifting art with the KC community and to provide a venue for artists to share their work alongside my own through my themed and juried shows. Each month I post open calls to artists which I advertise in my newsletters. My painting studio and frame shop are located across the hall in suite 160. Studio visits can be arranged upon request.
I love doing art fairs! I have been a participating artist in the local Kansas City Westport Art Fair since 2013. Join my newsletter to be in the loop on when and where I'll be showing my work.
