Kelly is mostly self taught. She has been an artist for many years and enjoys creating acrylic paintings. She has worked as an instructional assistant for elementary aged special needs children in Salem-Keizer and Silver Falls School districts. While there, she enjoyed using her art skills to create educational materials for her students and teaching them art.
Since her retirement two years ago, she has had more time to focus on her art. She began teaching adults four years ago, specializing in guided paintings and paint parties.
I love to help bring out the inner artist, encouraging people to find their own style, as I guide them through a fun painting.
