Kayleigh is a multidisciplinary artist working from her studio in Melbourne/Naarm. Born in Manchester in 1992, Kayleigh graduated with a first-class honours in Interactive Arts from the Manchester School of Art and Design in 2014. Currently based in Australia, Kayleigh’s practice continues to focus on painting and sculpture in response to her ever-changing physical, social and emotional landscape. 

Her work often draws inspiration from her emotional experiences creating a textural landscape of colour inter-play, soft and bold movements and wild yet harmonious endings.

Constantly pushing her practice forward, Heydon feels most comfortable when her work is in a state of metamorphosis, trying new things and constantly questioning her approach to painting as a way to better understand herself and the world.
