Kelly is a self taught artist who re-found her talents only in her mid 40’s. She lives with her husband and four big dogs by the sea in West Sussex on the south coast of the UK.
“When I was young I loved to draw and paint, but I couldn’t see that there could be a working future for me doing that. So I put it all to the back of my head for 29 years and got on with building another career for myself. Then suddenly in my mid 40s I started to draw again, totally out of the blue. And I’ve not stopped since.
I find inspiration all around me and I am forever taking pictures and typing ideas onto my phone. I’m a lover of the absurd and whimsical which I think comes across in my artworks, and of course I’m a huge animal lover, so many of my artworks feature animals in absurd situations.
I’ve also been a collector of old books and illustrations all of my life, so it’s been a natural progression to start to combine this passion with my artwork.
