Kellie’s Artistic Style
Kellie is an award-winning photographer and visual artist with a deep desire to connect to nature, to her audience and to herself. Kellie plays with texture, light, movement and nature to create evocative figurative images, which are deeply engaging.
How it Happened
It was a Thursday night when gallery owner Nancy Donaldson from Art Lovers Australia called Kellie and asked if she could get three artworks to the Block site in St Kilda, Melbourne before Sunday.
Kellie’s instant reaction was ‘YES definitely’ and got to work packing the prints, booked a flight to Melbourne and took the artwork directly to the shows site herself. Kellie was met by the production crew, given a hard hat and hi viz vest and was escorted to meet the Perth couple in their apartment. Upon meeting them, Kellie was immediately comfortable, as if she had known them for years.
‘For an artist, to showcase your work nationally on a hit show like this, is such a wonderful opportunity, and I am truly grateful to everyone that made it happen’, Kellie says.
