Artist: Kayla Newnam
Where can you find her art? The Ice Cream Angel wings and sprinkles down the second staircase are all her masterpiece.
What style of art is it? Ice Cream art of course 😉
What makes the pieces she created for AOICE unique? After getting her bachelors of fine arts in paining from Pratt Institute of Art & Design in Brooklyn, Kayla returned to the valley and has worked with the Canal Convergence and other local Scottsdale art committees.
Her senior thesis in college was centered around Ice Cream Art so commissioning a piece for the Art of Ice Cream was a no brainer.
Artist: Katie Von Kral
Where can you find her art? The coloring wall in the interactive hallway.
What is her style of art? She is most recognized for doing large originals in her own mixed-media/collage style that can generally only be seen at public and private exhibitions and auctions. In addition, she makes her past, present, and future pieces available as affordable, limited edition prints in all sizes and printed on different mediums. Each piece is unique and original in its own right because I personally embellish, sign, and number each print that is ordered from her website.
What makes the piece she created for AOICE unique? Katie created her coloring book wall by taking inspirations from Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlors and meshed that idea with a beach theme to play off of the Neapolitan Beach idea.
Artist: Dawn Bowman
Where can you find her art? The Ice Cream clouds in the Neapolitan Beach Room & the checkered floor in the milkshake room.
What is her style of art? Dawn focuses on Studio Art, Painting and Illustration. She began her career in Theatrical Set Design and Event Design & Construction.
What makes the piece she created for AOICE unique? The mural in the Neapolitan Beach room was created using her faux painting mastery and creative genius. Using a combination of spray and brush techniques she was able to create the clouds and floating cones.
