About K.A. Letts

Chicago/Detroit, IL

A set and costume designer by training, K.A. Letts brings an unusual skill set to her work in the studio. The artist has absorbed the influence of early 20th century masters and has combined them with techniques and imagery from aboriginal art, outsider and street art to create a unique visual language. These erudite yet accessible figurative works are tightly crafted, carefully drawn, deeply felt.

K.A. Letts is a graduate of Barnard College (B.A.) and Yale Drama School (M.F.A.) She currently divides her time between Chicago and her farm in rural Michigan. She is an Inter/National Alumna Artist at A.I.R. Gallery in Brooklyn, and a member of 555 Gallery in Detroit. She is a 2013 juried award winner of the ArtSlant.com online competition in painting.
