This past May, the Ontario art community lost one of its shining lights: Carol “Kiki” Juliana Kays. She leaves behind her loving husband Robert, and beloved children Alexandra, Michael, Natahlie, Sean, and Andrew. Kiki was a driven artist and teacher, known not only for her love and talent for putting colour to canvas, but also in sharing her passion and drive with other artists. Today she is not only remembered though cherished paintings, but also her impact and influence with those she taught, guided, and passionately encouraged to pursue their own creative projects. Her passion for art was pure and natural, creating works out of a desire to put ideas to canvas and escape the hustle and bustle of modern life. Her style was one of a kind, carrying a sense of whimsy, freedom, and a clear love for the subject. It was her belief that creating art revives your spirit, and she was a shining example.
“Creativity is contagious. Pass it on.” - Albert Einstein
The family of Kiki Kays and Quinn’s of Tweed is honoured to host a celebration of her work on September 14th, 2019, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.. The celebration will act as a tribute to her art and life, including a silent auction of her remaining work (16 pieces) where all proceeds will be donated to one or more of Kiki’s charities. Light refreshments and snacks will be provided.
