Artist Profile

Kathleen Kelley


Mediums: Drawing, Colored Pencil

Kathleen M. Kelley did not set out to become an artist. Although she loved to draw and paint as a child, her interests expanded into other areas as she grew up. A college major in English literature turned improbably into a career in accounting & finance. It wasn?t until her 60th year, when she enrolled in a course titled The Artist?s Way, that the artist in her was reborn. That course, based on the book of the same name by Julia Cameron, proved to be a life-changing experience.

Kathy?s use of the colored pencil as her implement of choice evolved from experimentation with various media. In the colored pencil she found both intensity of color and precision of line, two characteristics of great importance to her. Her subject matter derives from her travels, both near and far, and she finds particular inspiration in Europe with its medley of architecture, culture and customs. She is particularly attracted by the interaction between objects created by man ? buildings, boats and bridges ? and the natural landscapes that surround them.

Kathy is a member of the Colored Pencil Society of America and has exhibited both with the AAWA and the CPSA in juried and non-juried shows. In addition, she has been featured in a number of other shows around the Ann Arbor area, both solo and in collaboration with other artists.
