Kelly Haneklau, owner of Minor Miracles and Lead Instructor, enjoys art in its many forms. She works with customers and students to create their vision, help them attain one, or advance their skill level. Her specialties include commissioned art work, custom murals, art lessons, painting, drawing and sculpting just about anything.
She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Fine Art and is always active in one or more art projects on any given day. One of her great loves is helping all people of all ages, races, religions, sexual orientations, and backgrounds, reach their true potential through art.
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 emerges like a visual journey you want to travel to again and again. Her most recent projects are focusing on the racial injustices in America. She hopes her work can help to make a difference. 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 a must for me. There is no box to begin with." Kelly Haneklau
"After reading a powerful article by Dr. James Haywood Rolling, Jr., President-Elect of the National Art Education Association, Chair of the NAEA Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Commission and Professor of Arts Education, Syracuse University....it became clear to me that in order to help the racial injustice in our nation, I had to start with my self identification. This simple act alone, if done by many, can make a difference.
I changed my title of Artist to Anti-Racist Artist."
