Hi! I’m Kayleigh, and I write about using the fine arts to uplevel our lives.

Forget everything you think you know about “appreciating” the fine arts and get ready to fall in love, know yourself better, and maybe even become a little obsessed.

The fine arts are roadmaps to being human, and i want to show you how to use them. I combine my training as an opera singer with my background in law and corporate communication to tell the world that loving the fine arts is actually really easy… and way more profound than most people understand.

The fine arts are really, really awesome. Like, most people have no idea. The arts are basically a toolkit for knowing ourselves better, understanding the big questions and joys of life, and celebrating how amazing human achievement can be. So now I use my background as a musician, my personal obsession with the fine arts, and my expertise in breaking down complex subjects to teach people like you how to get all the good stuff out of the fine arts.

But you came here to learn more about me! I’m a Canadian West Coast (best coast) girl, originally from the prairies (hence, the sailor’s mouth, interminable optimism, and foolhardy devotion to the Saskatchewan Roughriders). My husband Ryan is a professional orchestral trumpet player, and we live on Vancouver Island (which, if you don’t know, is super Pacific Northwest-y… lots of bookshops, beaches, and coffee). I’m obsessed with books, my boxer Molly (the most beautiful dog in the world), and, of course, the fine arts. I’m a self-professed study addict (partly for the stationery…), I love routines and minimalism (because: efficiency), and I’ve been a student of personal development and self-improvement since I was a very weird (unique?) child.

I’m also passionate about making art, Ryan and I do freelance writing, consulting, and management services for artists and organizations through our company Fanfare Consulting & Services Inc., and I spend a lot of time watching Judge Judy, reading non-fiction, and making music.

So if you love to learn (perhaps you’re a #studyaddict like me), you’re looking for a new way to know more about yourself, or you want a really sexy, fascinating new hobby… subscribe and follow along!

And thank you for stopping by!
