Local artist and Roanoke native Kaydee Pickle (Wertz), is always adding plenty of color! Her favorite is purple, but she pledges unending allegiance to the whole rainbow! Before the age of four, she began cultivating skills toward creating a life of Art. Receiving countless awards and 1st place honors throughout her school years, Kaydee now naturally thrives in a wide spectrum of artistry. Her passion is poured into both 2 and 3 dimensional artwork such as murals, interactive installations, landscape and portrait paintings, sculpture, collage work, card making, restoration and concept pieces, as well as event aesthetics. This range is accomplished with her knowledgable utilization of a wide variey of mixed-media. Kaydee has also served as the Art Director behind the region's beloved Happiness and Harmony Music and Arts Festival for it's duration, and continues to work within a troop of local female artists, known as "the Heartists". She is especially joyful about sharing a piece of art with everyone at Roanoke's PaintNite!!
