Who is Kandy Cross?

I am a Carolina girl with a heart of gold and a passion for color. I promised my Mama that I would follow the sun and that led me to where I am now.


I paint… vibrant soulful watercolors and acrylic canvases inspired by

Mediterranean and Caribbean locales on my bucket list while listening to music.


I sketch… on location as much as possible, creating color notation sketches which I work from when I return to the studio.


I travel… where I paint. I have also painted where I’ve traveled.


I am… rewired. Yeah, baby, and wired for sound. Teaching art?  Been there, done that, worn that t-shirt.


I write… about life after teaching. The blog, “Livin’ La Dolce Vita…  Or Close To It” can be found here on my website.


I have… one studio assistant. Ok, IRS, do not contact me. Last time I checked, you cannot claim pups as employees.


I live… at the beach. Enough said!
