K. D. Hafley is a professional artist living in North Texas. A native of Austin, Texas, she grew up creating art and received her formal education in art at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1990. After graduation, she pursued a career in the Galleries Business in both Chicago and San Diego before moving to the Dallas/Fort Worth area in 2003 to indulge her other passion, the care of animals and animal rescue. However, shortly after moving to McKinney in 2006, she decided to return to her art on a full-time basis. Because of her love for animals, most of her paintings feature them. Currently, her work is being shown at the Sky Pony Gallery in north Dallas/Plano. Has had work on display at the Omni Hotel in Dallas. In 2013 a painting of hers was purchased by the city of McKinney and is on permanent display at their performance art building. In addition to pieces she paints for gallery sales and shows, she accepts commissions for custom paintings.
