Kelsey Howard Art
I was born and raised in Wilmington, NC. After graduating from Elon University in 2014 with an art major and biology minor, I attended UNC- Greensboro and became a registered nurse. While I had made art for many years, I became much more invested in painting as I grew in my first year as a nurse. Sitting in front of an easel after a day of work brings me a lot of joy and relaxation. The first subject I truly loved to paint was the human face. I love using bright colors while working in more subtle colors, textures, and details. When I’m not painting, you’ll usually find me walking at the beach. I also love to gather inspiration from traveling!
My work typically focuses on using bright colors while playing with light and shadow and fun accessories. I’m always looking for interesting poses and how I can play with faces in different ways. I want my work to have a sense of energy that pulls you into each piece. I love creating wild colorful women who are imperfect but beautiful. They inspire me to be brave and not worry about being perfect.
