BIO


Keeyla Meadows is a colorful artist applauded for her pioneering work of making gardens giant scale works of art. Her gardens are living color "paintings" you can walk into-taste, smell, eat and dream in.Derived from a vivid imagination, Keeyla's gardens, sculpture, paintings and ceramic works invite you to release daily irritants as you enter a paradise on earth.


Born in San Fernando Valley among tumbleweed and acanthus bushes, Keeyla Meadows moved as a child to a canyon above Beverly Hills--just up the street from an old woman who would sit under an umbrella, selling maps to the homes of the stars.
Keeyla has a B.A. from the California Institute of the Arts, where she studied with John Baldisarri and Alan Kaprow. She earned her Masters Degree in Sculpture at University of California at Berkeley, studying there with word-renowned sculptor Peter Voulkous, with post-graduate studies at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
For over twenty years, Keeyla has run a full-scale landscaping company, Keeyla Meadows Gardens and Art, in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she also has a home gallery that shows her sculpture, paintings, furniture, and planters for the garden. Keeyla's garden has appeared on Good Morning America and Grow It! television programs.


Keeyla teaches garden classes and lectures on garden topics at her home and at local nurseries and garden events. She has published articles about color in the garden magizines and newspapers, and her garden has been featured in numerous national magazines as well as in garden publications in Japan, Finland, and Enland. She won Best in Show Golden Gate Award at the 2001 San Francisco Flower and Garden Show and Best Personal Retreat Award from Sunset Magazine.
