Working as a professional artist since 1972, Kely has developed a style rewarded by awards and credibility. Rhode Island School of Design helped form a strong foundation; continued education was achieved in workshops, and decades of experience.
“As an artist I am a passionate, intense observer of the world around me. Watching colors reflect on objects in shadow and light, and watching shapes change, captures my attention and compels me to interpret. Fascination with color is my key to expression. I am drawn to watercolor by the spontaneity and surprise of this medium. Applying watercolor in layers creates luminosity and depth. Simplifying complex scenes and subjects provides the stage for amazing visual effects; shapes and colors form a harmonious balance.”
Kely shares her talents through teaching popular private classes at her studio and at the Cape Cod Museum of Art.
