About Kelly

I believe creating art in some ways exposes a society to itself and allows me as an artist to divulge my impressions of the world. Unlike a photograph that gives the viewer a near replica of a scene, I as the artist use my discretion to create what I want to reveal. To share this vision my preferred medium of choice is oil paint. My relationship to paint continues to evolve as I pursue and develop my artistic aesthetic. This evolution results from paying closer attention to my artistic process with each painting and how paint can bring depth, character and content to a flat surface. I find the more I develop my artistic process, the more I learn about being an artist and the powerful communication I can convey through my paintings.
