Kelley was born in Billings, MT where her passion for texture and color and miniature things developed at an early age. She spent most of her life expressing herself through water color, collage and found object sculpture. Her propensity is toward 3-D so when she was introduced to the idea of the book as art eight years ago, she found it fit her contemplative personality and her hands-on, “let’s build it” approach.
Her work can be found at Bend Art Center and Hood Avenue Art Gallery in Sisters, OR. Kelley is on the governing board of the Sisters Arts Association, a Friend of Bend Art Center, and a resident artist of The Wilds Bend.
Kelley’s work has been recently exhibited at Illahe Gallery, Ashland, OR and Atelier 6000, Bend, OR.
