Kayla Mohammadi, born in San Francisco, received her B.F.A. from University of Washington and M.F.A. from Boston University.

Her current work has turned to creating abstract visual spaces by the use of overlapping marks and color. Space flattens in one area and expands in another. In some of the paintings you get a sense of looking through several layers. Marks are made as a final layer in one painting or mixed in the cacophony of light, color, movement in another. At times she forgoes freehand and uses a found stencil. The focus then turns to pattern and the interruption of pattern. She has always been interested in creating paintings that are both beautiful and unusual.

Mohammadi has lectured at institutions including Rhode Island School of Design, University of Washington, and Dartmouth College. She is Assistant Professor at Massachusetts College of Art in Boston and lives and works in Boston and Walpole, Maine.
