Landscapes and Seascapes

Long Island, Florida

A friend of mine (thanks Vince) took me out in his sailboat and dropped me off
on the island at 7 am, later picked me up at 5 pm. The right spot to work from
was 21 paces south of the island, in the water. I’d been watching the currents
and planned for them. The picture attached was taken by friends, (thanks Karen
and Bob)
. Although this painting was started Plein Air it was finished in my studio
soon after.

Student Recommendations:

     “Kelly is a wonderfully talented artist and art teacher. She is able to instruct all ages, abilities, and mediums. She has an arsenal of tools and techniques to share with her students. She continues to work and grow as an artist herself, therefore, so do her students. Lucky us!” - Lori Bradfield, Student, Art Travel Buddy, Friend

     “Kelly gives each of her students personal attention and she is able to explain methods, techniques and ideas three or four different ways until she sees the light bulb go off in your head!”  - Larry Lavargna or

     "Kelly has a unique gift with her combination of artistic talent, technical skills and experience to connect with people of all ages. She brings out in them their own unique abilities, allowing them to be challenged, yet not overwhelmed, no matter the subject, medium or their own skill level. She is the ultimate teacher." - Susan Roberts

     "One of the many wonderful things about Kelly, is that she is “one stop shopping” for an art instructor.  I found that many instructors teach only one medium, but not Kelly.  My daughters have learned everything from drawing, painting, photoshop to even doll making over the years.  If there is an art form you want to learn and experience, chances are, Kelly can teach it to you." - Michelle Pray (mother of Mia and Tessa Pray)
