  Kelly's love of art has been life-long and she has always been  involved in and practicing art. So much so, that upon entering college, she felt she should branch out and connect with another love, dancing. However, an old leg injury proved to be too painful for her to continue, so she returned to art. She considers this redirection of focus confirmation in her passion, and she is extremely grateful since she cannot imagine her life any other way.  

 Kelly works in many applications, however, her primary medium is acrylic on paper/canvas/wood. Her work balances color, light and form carefully to culminate into a feast for the eyes. Depth in her compositions emerge like a visual journey you want to travel to again and again. Kelly thrives off of the lawlessness of art, not only in her journey of admiring and collecting art, but in her own personal creations. Her art theory on style and subject matter is a simple one. It is not necessary to remain focused on one style or technique or genre. Thinking and creating outside the box is not only a must, for her, there is no box begin with.
