Kay graduated with an MFA from Whitecliffe in 2004. She is currently in Italy completing the first of two large oil works depicting the destruction of the town of Cassino during WWII. Following her exhibition at this museum in May and June this year, these paintings were commissioned for the entry to the Cassino War Memorial Museo della Battaglia di Cassino. She will complete the second work, the ruins of the Cassino camponile, on site in 2006.
