Hey, I'm Kiley.
I love art, doable DIY, and my cat, Bea.
But, my bread and butter is brush lettering! Say that 5x's fast!
I'm a teacher and a designer... A teacher of online and in-person workshops. I launched my first online class, The Love How You Letter Class, in April of 2017, and am now focusing on creating a library of Skillshare classes focusing on my specialties. When I'm not teaching, I work out of my home office as a product designer for Inked Brands!
I co-host a podcast... I started The Misses Ambitious Podcast with my business BFF in 2017. Our show is for the creative or entrepreneurial spirit who wants to dive into this scary/crazy/awesome world, but needs a little pep talk first...we are currently on hiatus but you can catch up on our backlog of over 100 episodes on iTunes and Spotify!
I blog about the fun stuff… As social media takes over the role of what a blog used to be, my blog has become a reprieve for me to share about projects and resources that are all for fun. My goal is to mesh lifestyle with art and to inspire you to make your surroundings fun, bright, happy, and totally reflective of you.
Other titles I go by:

Kiley in Kentucky' began in 2013 as a small lifestyle blog I used to gain writing and photography experience shortly after graduating college. When I moved to New York City in 2014, I was SURE life in New York City would inspire me to continue blogging, but it simply didn't feel right anymore and, reluctantly, I went on an indefinite hiatus. To my surprise, when I took a step back, everything started coming into focus! I picked up hand-lettering as a way to pass time at a low-key desk job and re-discovered my love of blogging...this time about lettering tutorials and inspiration! By mid-2016, I had moved back to Kentucky, opened an online shop, gotten married, and relocated (again) to Southern Illinois, where I live with my adorable husband. Kiley will soon be back in Kentucky at the end of 2019, as we relocate to Lexington, Kentucky!
