About Kayla Garvin

Laidback, easygoing, carefree: Traits most of us would love to attribute to ourselves, but few can really claim. The exceedingly good-natured Kayla Garvin is an exception. Born in Eugene, Oregon, a small college town she says is “very hippie-like,” the middle child of three siblings (her sister is a model too, sharing the same ocean-blue eyes) relocated a lot growing up. “When I was seven, we moved to Vegas for a year and then Colorado. Everybody’s like, ‘Are you from a military family?’ No. My mom’s a gypsy and she likes to move around!” As a result, our January 2018 Playmate has the breezy air of adaptability, as well as an affinity for road trips and adventures. “I’m usually up for anything,” she says slyly. “Within reason.”

That includes shifts in directions. “I never planned on modeling. I always knew, whatever I did, I wanted to be artistic in some way. I went to college, majoring in psychology with a minor in art. I was going to go to grad school to get a master’s in art therapy.” The professional model still calls herself an artist at heart. “Lately, I’ve been doing a lot more abstract art. I’m a perfectionist, which isn’t always a good thing, so it makes me feel free. It doesn’t have to be perfect. I can just let it all out. I just go with whatever I’m feeling.” She’s also been absorbed in landscape photography, a passion inspired by the lush terrain of her home state.

She also offers up some solid relationship advice. “You have to be in a good place yourself in order to be in a healthy relationship. If you’re not in a good place, your relationship isn’t going to be heathy. Focus on yourself first.”
