Traveling Artist on a Mission to Paint EVERY National Park

Hello, my name is Kayla Allen. I am a Plein Air Artist from Maryland and over the past two years I have spent 10 months living on the road in an attempt to paint all 63 US National Parks on site! So far I have painted thirty-seven. Here you can find updates on my journey, a photo series of my Parks Collection and shop the collection as I roam!
