After years spent focused on the busy life of as a mother of three children and the supportive wife of a husband with a successful business startup, Kelly circled back around to her first love -- painting.


Kelly lived in London for two years and, while in Europe, visited world-class museums, heard engaging lectures and took classes from world renowned experts that "stirred my (her) once again."

Upon returning to Virginia, her longtime home, Kelly determined to return to the studio to explore color - which is what she names as the number one exciting element of painting for her - whether the colors are in landscapes, abstracts or collages.
