Artist Statement:Kaocrew “Yah” Kakabutra (b. 1989, Thailand) joined the Creativity Explored studio in 2011 after moving from Thailand to the US in 1997. Kakabutra has been part of the Art Explosion community since 2018. She communicates through her artworks and her loving, kind, and sociable personality.
Initially making small-scale works on paper, her mark making is as diverse as the media she works with. Repeated circular forms are made with colored pencil over a background mixture of acrylic and pastel. Alternately, Kakabutra delicately washes watercolors in flowing pastel shades.
