September 2015 Artists – Kris Kelley, plus Alicia & Shalon of Gold Coast Artifacts

IMG_4033Kris Kelley is a mixed media artist who enjoys working with marker, pastel, gouache, ink, and colored pencil. Kris’ piece “Grief” was featured in The Geography of Loss: Embrace What Is, Honor What Was, Love What Will Be by Patti Digh, published by Skirt Press in 2014. We are excited to be hosting Kris for her third show at Blue Door Beads! A few words from Kris:

“Illustration or painting with an illustrative orientation is what inspires me most. I particularly gravitate toward children’s book illustration. I draw on the influence of Paul Klee and Matisse as well as children’s book illustrators Jon Klassen, Josef Wilkon, and Beatrice Alemagna. I hope you will experience my artwork as fresh, thought-provoking and/or tongue-in-cheek!”
