Kelley’s artwork is inspired by the mysterious. Her images portray dreams, fears and phobias, while seeking to transcend a world of chaos. Her visual language brings together animal symbolism, spirituality and archetypical characters to form her own narratives both beautiful and dark.
Kelley has a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, and an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in NYC. Her first major show was in 2014 with Last Rites Gallery, NYC. She also shows with Lovetts Gallery in Tulsa, OK and at various art conventions (Illuxcon being a favorite) throughout the year. Recent projects include illustrating a card game for Atlas Games called “Lost in R’lyeh”, creating custom-painted fashion clothing for Marc Jacobs, and airbrushing murals for Marc Jacobs fashion events. And commissioned paintings! She works from her studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
