I am an artist, and art educator who loves to play with new ideas.
Working in watercolor, pen and ink, botanical alchemy and illustration, nature has a heavy influence on much of my work. I have taught and exhibited both domestically and internationally in multiple mediums and regularly work with varied populations.
I am a member of Buffalo Society of Artists, Niagara Frontier Watercolor Society and The Guild of Natural Science Illustrators.
As the CEO and lead artist of Whimsy by Kelly, you can find me in my studio located in the historic district of Allentown, Downtown Buffalo, NY inside Hiraeth House.
“I believe art is for everyone, my youngest student is 4 and my oldest is 97. You can do this, you just have to remember that your imagination is magic. Practice is necessary but the only thing keeping you from creating is the idea that you can't."
I am teaching a free workshop series, suitable for all experience levels, of hand drawn botanicals monthly until Sept 2023, and you can register here
