Symbolism in art has always interested me, and I’ve started working it into more of my pieces. I’ve also been having fun with hidden imagery. This figure emerged by accident after one of my sketches had a little something extra emerge.
The frame was a lucky find on a recent trip to Vermont, from a little antique shop on the drive up. It’s embellished in gold with red velvet (I love velvet) around the edge, and matches well with the colors in the painting.
Image is 8×10, with frame it measures 13×15

Bio: Kelley is inspired by the mysterious. She grew up in a house by the woods surrounded by animals and wilderness, so many of her themes bring together strange nature, mortality and spirituality. Using archetypes of characters from folklore and myth as well as her own stories, she enjoys portraying unusual tales that symbolize our emotions and fears.
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 mediums are oils on wood and pencil on paper, and she loves to create her work by hand. Her favorite genres range from gothic and steampunk to classic fantasy and legends. Traveling is her only other passion equal to a career in art and is a vital component in inspiring her work.
