“When I paint nothing matters and this nothingness is everything.

Inspired by the moment I have paint on me, paint all around me and a canvas in front of me waiting for me to listen to it.”

~ K S W

Inspired by the countries I have been to, by the patterns in the landscape, by the arrangements of space in the sky, inspired by the fire in my belly, by the deep love and strength I see in others, inspired by my raging love for the beauty and my raging anger for the craziness in this world.

Kellie tried art school in Toronto and despised the conformity and constrictions, she left. She researched contemporary art on her own and became inspired by the abstract expressionists, les automatistes and action painters who emphasized the physical act and spontaneity of painting. Her medium is acrylic and the larger the canvas the better. Rarely using a paint brush Kellie's textural, bold, unique style captures emotion on canvas.

With clients in Calgary, Edmonton, Canmore, Texas and Germany, showing in venues in Calgary, Toronto, Canmore and Kelowna, Kellie is proving herself to be an up and coming artist in demand.
