About the artist
Kelsey is a watercolorist, graphic designer, and plant enthusiast. Moving to the pacific northwest from dryer environments like the Midwest and Southern California, it was a shock to see such lush surroundings. She is inspired by the naturally occurring flora of the PNW that she had only seen in photos, and to experience them in person is even now a wonder to witness. Her artwork is an effort to show what is not seen at first glance; a spotlight on what is beautiful, stark, and serene. She hopes to bring attention to the small and unnoticed, from living things beneath our feet that just become part of the landscape, without a hand to move the magnifying glass.
Mentioned in the Boston Globe Magazine for her work in papercutting and an upcoming local market (Issue August 4, 2013). It was a heart-swelling moment to be publicly recognized for her work, and set the stage for many opportunities to come.
