I’ve kept photos of these little birds for a number of years now, and I’ve painted them before for a tiny piece I made for a gallery show at Last Rites in 2014. There’s something about this pair that moves me when I look at them. I’ve been wanting to revisit them to do another version of their story, with the flowers and twigs as embellishments.
Kelley is an artist residing in Brooklyn, NY. She earned her MFA from the School of Visual Arts and her BFA from the Rhode Island School of design. Her favorite medium is oil paint and she loves to create her work by hand. She is fascinated with deciphering the myths and symbolism behind all types of religions. She believes being well-read in a variety of subjects is an important element to bring depth to art making, with a few of her favorites being psychology and scientific discovery. Traveling is her only other passion equal to a career in art and is a vital component of inspiring her work. In her art making she explores hidden meanings behind obscure stories, influenced by a mix of genres from the gothic and steampunk to classic fantasy and legends.
