Kellie Reynolds' Profile

About

Welcome and thanks for taking the time to stop by. My name is Kellie and I live in the greater Seattle area in a condo with my aging father and two rambunctious felines who sometimes love to leave their creative marks on my work. *snicker* Thank heaven for them and creative outlets that help keep me balanced.

Since I was old enough to hold a pencil I can remember painting and drawing with regularity. While learning Mexican history in the second grade, I constructed an entire dimensional hacienda from cardboard complete with tiny pencils and pencil cup. I think that was the moment that sparked my interest in paper art. Today I still enjoy creating dimensional art forms from paper, often embellishing them with trims, fabrics, beads or other odds and ends.

I think the real challenge for me is in coming up with ways to create organic shapes…

I think the real challenge for me is in coming up with ways to create organic shapes from a medium that, at first glance, wants to remain contained within geometric parameters. Paper is one of the most versatile mediums around. It can flow organically like nature or it can be rigid and foundational like man made architecture. How do you create something round from something flat? Using the imagination to manipulate the paper into doing what I want it to do sometimes means deconstructing and reconstructing it again. Sometimes the results are surprising in delightful ways sometimes not but I learn something new with each project.


Cheers!
