"I choose wine with the prettiest label, I buy books only for the pictures inside, and I eat cake only for the frosting"
Once Upon a time in the 1970's...
...Kelly picked up a pencil and started drawing. When she was old enough to understand that she could make a living drawing pictures, she devoted her life planning to do just that.
Some of her clients include Disney, Girl's Life Magazine, Seattle Magazine, A&E, Scholastic, Burger King and many other clients who needed lovely images.
Kelly creates original artwork from the sugary world of her imagination that highlights the bittersweet to deliciously joyful parts of life, with a bit of salacious tongue and cheek thrown in to spice it up.
Her products range from greeting cards and jewelry, to textiles.
In 2014, seven of Kelly's designs were licensed to Tree-Free Greetings.
Kelly lives on Queen Anne with her daughter Lily and their rambunctious cat, Sir Benjamin Gigi.
