Katia Kyte - Inspirational fine arts artist who knows what it takes to be a successful artist
Katia Kyte is a fine arts artist originally from Russia but now living America, painting mostly in oils. She’s a delightful woman, who splits her time between a gallery worker, her art studio and her young daughter. She talks openly about how important personal development is to her art journey, as well as continued learning.
“Do you want to be the best out of the worst, or do you want to be the worst out of the best and be able to learn more?”
Katia talks to us about:
How visiting democratic Germany led to her studying languages instead of medical science, like her doctor parents.
How she took the time in America, as a young au pair, to ask herself what she really wanted to do with her life, which led to her exploring art as a career.
