Experimenting with abstract and nonrepresentational pieces Kelly is deeply interested in the effects of color, texture and the emotional response to strong composition and design. By mixing bold color, geometric and organic shapes and textures Kelly hopes to create art that evokes emotion while telling a visually exciting story.
Kelly was born in Rockford, Illinois and spent her youth in Morton, Illinois.  After receiveing  her BFA from Southeast Missouri State University she moved between Memphis, Washington D.C., San Francisco, Denver and Salt Lake City until this wanderer found her way back home. She is once again living and making art in her small central Illinos town.
