Tucked comfortably in the Arts District of Liberty Station in Point Loma, Calif., MK Envision Galleries first opened in October 2016 and now enjoys a thriving client base. Founders Michelle Ballantyne and Kelsey Nordal share the aesthetic of featuring art that focuses on the natural world with emphasis on “beauty in our backyard.”
Kelsey Nordal and Michelle Ballantyne always envisioned themselves being surrounded by nature. The two BFs, who first met as business students at the University of San Diego, immediately bonded over a mutual love of the natural world and, more pressingly, a love of trying to capture the majesty of the great outdoors.
Both University of San Diego alumnae, the pair have teamed to create MK Envision Galleries, the latest art gallery to be opened in the growing arts district of Liberty Station. The 1,700-square-foot ground-floor gallery space is in an old barracks building at the former Point Loma Naval Training Center.
