More About The Artist: Kel Cadet-Lyons
Kel is a multimedia artist and the founder and lead creative of R-KI-TEKT, a brand producing modern and artful accessories and home goods. She currently resides in Atlanta, GA with her family, and strives to operate in flows, doing her best to resist rigidity and formality in all of her daily tasks.
Kel believes color has the ability to heal us and patterns are the seasoning to our lives. She shares that our world is better off when we surround ourselves with objects and arts that please the eye. Drawing inspiration from vintage travel advertisements, her childhood in the Caribbean, tribal patterns and markings from Africa, and even found objects in her community, Kel shares that ongoing exploration of our world is her greatest muse.
With a degree in Fashion and Graphic Design, she is currently focusing on creating accessories for R-KI-TEKT, honoring the lives and cultures of her ancestors with playful patterns that add visual zest. After a long day of running a company and taking care of her family you can find Kel in her studio listening to podcasts or music, mixing paints just for fun, and creating new works for further inspiration.
