Kelley's garage studio is located in Birmingham, Alabama, where she lives and does most of her painting. Her favorite medium is oil, because of the flexibility it allows in creating depth, movement, and richness of color, but she occasionally paints watercolors as well. Her paintings evoke our emotions as she shares her favorite subjects which include figures, landscapes, seascapes, animals, and still life. She graduated from the University of Alabama, and is a member of the Mountain Brook Art Association.
Her paintings have been exhibited in the gallery at Littlehouse on Linden, the Mountain Brook Art Show, the Pepper Place Art Exhibit, and the Energen Art Show and Competition, where she was awarded first place for her landscape. Since 2005 she has studied with master artist, John Lonergan.
