A Little About Kayy Finn
The creation of strawberryzskies came to be in 2020 during the global COVID-19 pandemic. Finding beauty in the simple every day moments has always been one of Kayy’s special skill. She tries her best to remind others through her art that no matter the day, the sun always sets and makes way for a new tomorrow. Time keeps moving forward and the rollercoaster ride of life does eventually go back up.
Kayy worked as an educator in NYC for ten years- first as a Special Education teacher, followed by School Counselor and Mental Health Advocate and Educational Leader. What started as monthly framed print collections on strawberryzskies.com has since developed into a carefully curated product line of high end quality items that are ethically sourced and created with sustainability and eco-friendly manufacturing in mind. Silk scarves, silk pillows, cotton sweatshirts, wooden postcards, wooden puzzles and more have all landed in homes across the world in the last three years with portions of proceeds having helped funding eight learning projects on DonorsChoose.org.
Through life’s obstacles, Kayy has learned that success can not always be measured through one's accomplishments. For her, success is most often felt in the moments where she is finding joy creating and helping others realize their worth and learn how to shine their own unique light on this world. Kayy absolutely loves connecting with others and is happy to answer any inquiries on her art, photography or independent educational counseling and consulting!
