About KelseyMerkleArt

On Etsy since 2016

I want to do what I love. Allow me to create something for you that you will love too.

Faces are important to every person’s social interaction. If something is “off” about a portrait; We know it instantly, which is why a good portrait is so challenging. There is nothing I love better than the challenge of expression and movement in the human form and face. The eyes in a portrait tell the story more than any other, and it is typically where I start.

Body language expresses an unspoken visual communication; color shapes, and texture also play a roll. Rather than create traditional, more stilted portraits; I use shiny mediums, fun colors, flowers and shapes to bring my muses to life. The mirror often doesn’t reflect how someone feels they look. I want to give my clients the “selfie” they long for.

    My Grandmother was a Painter, so my Mom understands what is involved. She does the accounting, show entry, packs and unpacks the truck, mats my prints, packages and tags them. She wrote this too. :)
