Kellie was inspired to become an artist by the beauty of her surroundings in Maine. “Living here in Maine is so inspirational with its wonderful coastline, lakes, pine trees, and islands.” She finds her passion in creativity and enjoys exploring new challenges in using many mediums such as watercolor, alcohol inks, resin, and more. “My passion is creativity! I believe everyone has it, and you don't have to be perfect, you just have to play. It is not always about the outcome, it's about your process. Art is a great way to explore and release energy.” 

Kellie’s “Mr. Blue the Lobster” painting is one of her favorites in her collection. “I was so inspired about the fact that catching a blue lobster is a 1 in 2 million shot. The beautiful coloration of the shell was so fun and beautiful to paint.” She enjoys capturing the beauty of Maine and nature within her work the most. “Mostly seascapes and landscapes of places I have been or sailed to when I was a teenager.”

When beginning a new project or piece, Kellie draws from the feelings each piece gives her. “I love to explore the colors in nature, see how the lights and darks bounce, and of course painting water.  I am an earth sign and I love to be around water, it's one of the reasons our family wanted to  be debt-free so we could live at the lake full time.” Kellie encourages aspiring artists to enjoy the artistic process. “Enjoy the process, because when you do, it shows in your work. Keep going, always be learning and testing your limits, but mostly do YOUR thing!”
