Kelly has been heavily involved in Portland's art community for close to 20 years. As a painter she is best known for her encaustic process that has morphed to include a more mixed media approach as she explores and experiments in both style and scale, abstract to figurative, constantly challenging herself to find a contemporary voice for timeless experiences and current issues. She is collected and shown both locally and nationally, curated multiple large-scale exhibitions, and been interviewed for multiple publications. She also has been featured on both radio and television programs about her unique approach and philosophy towards her personal art and her community impact. She continues to educate and mentor both the amateur and professional artist in using art as a personal and creative development tool. This focus on exploring psychological inquiry, personal narrative and social change fuel the deep meaning and wide range of her powerful personal art, her educational workshops and private therapeutic sessions.
