I love Kelly's contemporary, heartfelt art! She uses vibrant colors and a lot of hearts, and just can't go wrong with that combination. We feature original pieces, prints and greeting cards by Kelly at Adelaide.
"I seek to to unite with the love that underlies everything and bring that to my canvases" -Kelly
More about the artist...
Kelly has a Master's Degree in music and photography, where she learned creative composition and harmony. She owned a photography studio for 25 years, but in 2005, she decided to go back to her childhood roots of art and writing. She's studied oil pastels with Justine Mantor-Waldie, layering, glazing, and scratching with Penny Benjamin Peterson, and Susan Falcon-Hargraves showed her more about color and courage.
Collectors include corporations such as the Arizona Heart Institute, and private collectors around the nation.
In Kelly's own words...
I love to use the element of surprise. I like to keep the viewers searching for more half-hidden words and small objects embedded in my paintings.
I use acrylic paint, as well as pastels, charcoal pencils, found items, torn paper, shards of CD's, and bits of metal. Some of my influences have been Peter Max and Walasse Ting."
