Kayce has been dreaming up and creating colorful things as long as she can remember. As a studio art major in college she focused on drawing, painting, and photography.

For many years Kayce's creative focus was in clothing. First working for Ralph Lauren in NY and then starting her own children's line called Pears & Bears. That line expanded into women's and became Kayce Hughes. The line grew to 3 stand alone stores (Nashville, Chattanooga and Atlanta) a website, trunk shows and whole sale accounts across the US and beyond. In 2016 she sold the company to 2 former employee's who have hired her to design with them under the name Peg & Kris.

She is excited to spend more time on her paintings, which have already garnered the attention of beautiful stores like Bunny Williams Home NYC, Draper James TN and Rivers Spencer LA, as well as several talented designers including Mark D Sikes, Sara Bartholomew, Pencil & Paper Co. and Jonathan Savage.
