Hi, meet me.
My name is Kelly and I like the colour red (red wine, red hair, red paint, red…. Well you get the picture). I am Nova Scotian born and raised and proud of it. My home studio is in Windsor, NS and I love to show my work over a glass of wine :). I am a huge fan of “support local” and am involved with several local art festivals, charities, and associations – your community is only as good as you make it. Known for my impasto/knife paintings I like to create large vibrant work with lots of texture.
Native to Nova Scotia Kelly and works mostly with knives, creating bold and luminescent works in both oil and acrylic. Her large knife paintings reflect her approach to life and art, creating movement and texture through saturated hues and thick layers. Known for her vibrant pallet she enjoys painting flowers and nature trying to capture the moment of discovery. Determined to bridge the gap between artisans and community and support the local economy and charities all at the same time, Kelly is continuously promoting a more holistic approach to art and getting recognized for it.
Kelly’s home studio is in Windsor, NS and doubles as the Phoenix Hollow B&B which she owns and operates. She shows by appointment there as well as hosts an annual studio show each spring and conducts workshops each fall. Over the past 20 years Kelly has taught and shown her work throughout North America and in Nova Scotia her work can be found at Made In The Maritimes, Teichert Gallery, Gallery 215, Avondale Sky Winery and the Phoenix Hollow B&B as well as with the Hants Community Arts Council and the NSDCC. You can also find Kelly’s art work on her website and international shipping is available.
