My old e-commerce Kaci Designs Art website is being revamped. I am aiming to launch by the end of January.
Just prior to Christmas my daughter and I launched our new e-commerce online shop. There you can see my surface pattern designs on Women's and Men's Clothing along with our Kaci Malone range of Homeware/Soft Furnishing products.
I am not your run of the mill artist, mainly self taught, critics may see what I do as inconsistent especially if I were to show individual pieces of the different bodies of my work at the same time. I do have an eclectic mix of works that have served different purposes in my life. The different types of my work align very much with what was going on during the times when the shifts and changes in my personal life were happening.
1991 was my first solo exhibition at Cuffley Library, then during November 1992 I teamed up with the East Herts Miscarriage association and did a solo exhibition to raise funds for their organisation. From 1993-1997 I partook in 23 exhibitions two of which were solo and the others were joint and mixed themed shows.
1996 I opened my own Art Gallery as a platform to show my work and displayed the works of many other artist.
Due to personal circumstances I closed my gallery late 1997.
2000 I returned to college to study construction trades and qualified as a Bricklayer and Interior Decorator. I worked on a building site as part of my studies to construct 10 flats and a community centre for Broxbourne Borough Council.
2002-2010 I was freelancing as an artist.
2011-2013 Peer Support worker for the NHS. I had a major Mental Breakdown but continued to create as a way of helping me through some very troubled times.
2014 I wrote my first journal which has many typo errors however, It really helped me to get some focus and distract me from the chaos in my mind. This is the link to my book
2016-2019 Experimented with surface pattern design to aid my recovery of anxiety and depression.
Set up and launched new e-commerce fashion & homeware products website.
I have experimented with various art materials for over 30 years and have a huge body of original sketches/doodles, abstract pastels, acrylic and mixed media abstract expressionist style florals.
For a period of eight years I supplied limited edition miniature sculptures and bespoke greeting cards to a property development company for their clients as Christmas gifts. My paintings also graced the walls of their offices in Chingford Essex.
From 2014 until April 2019 I was attending Art Therapy. I have a collection of 100 pieces of therapy work, which I hope to exhibit along with my other paintings once Iv'e organised my retrospective for sometime during 2020.
I have been away from the art scene for many years now mainly due to ill health and personal circumstances. My goal for 2020 is to find a venue in London to hold my retrospective and to reconnect with like minded folk.
For the short term. Please contact me by email for any information related to my artwork.
