I live in rural Missouri just minutes outside the darling historic town of Excelsior Springs with my soulmate of 30 years. My Bohemian Soul Studio is nestled behind our home close to the creek and hiking trails full of wild flora and fauna.

In 2016 I will begin hosting painting workshops that include nature strolls, earthing (walking barefoot in the grass), sitting by the creek, meditation, and light yoga stretching. Art is healing and I'd love for you to join me where we will unplug from technology, breathe deep, connect to Mother Earth, and listen to our own heart beat while we mindfully paint.

Each collection of my work here has been created since 2013
My artwork reflects the influences of those I admire most and have studied with. I have spent since 2009 in a frenzy of learning. Edges, values, colors, temperature, proper drawing. Engrossed in my studies, a bit eclectic in my style, but growing nonetheless.

I took Picasso's advice to heart and I'm learning the rules like a pro so I can break them like an artist. My time spent with Stanka Kordic this past year was mind bending to say the least. I will again spend a long weekend with her in 2017 here in my studio and I hope to be ready to be bent just a little bit more...

Each piece of my work is a reflection of thousands of hours of study, financial investment in equipment, studio, materials, and instruction. But more so it's a reflection of me. Of my love for art and the beauty it brings to our world. Each piece carries with it a bit of hope, a large amount of love, and hint of who I am inside. Please know that the value of each piece is not in how long it took me to paint, but the lifetime of love and years of work I've poured into my studies.

There will forever be the dance for me between realism and abstraction. I want to paint more than what I see. I want to also paint what I feel and what I yearn to communicate to the viewer.

Join me at my website home,
I hope you enjoy my artwork gallery, sign up for an e-course, follow my blog, or better yet, come join me for a workshop and we can paint together in the studio, walk barefoot in the grass, and enjoy the bird song beside the mossy creek.

Much love, Kelly
