Kelley finds her inspiration in the ever-changing natural beauty and moods of her surroundings. When creating her mixed media artwork, she prefers using a lot of layering to add depth and texture. Kelley explores a variety of combinations with creative techniques. At times, she will use color manipulation, acrylics and inks, overlays, and textures along with recycled materials, and solvents.

The materials used in the creative process have endless possibilities, allowing for great flexibility and freedom in creating art. Thus, offering a more interesting experience for art enthusiasts.

Artist Statement

Getting outside is good for the soul, it reminds us to slow down and reconnect with nature. The inspiration for my artwork and photography always comes back to the wonders of the ever-changing natural beauty around us. The objective of my work is to communicate a feeling of appreciation and to pay tribute to the natural world. It's about capturing and preserving that moment in nature.
