K Llamas explores topics regarding social, political and historical chasms. Combining minimalism with symbolic realism, she creates what often appears to be floating still lifes. This depiction of historical events and current societal constructs can range from satirical, ironic, humorous, exaggerated or serious in tone. Her large scale oil paintings often incorporate three-dimensional elements such as sewn seams in the canvas or the addition of multimedia materials.

Llamas is represented by the Tinney Contemporary Gallery in Nashville, TN. Her work and collaborative installations have been shown in all 50 states as well as abroad in Rome, Italy, Athens, Greece, Neuchatel, Switzerland, and Paris, France.
