I am passionate about BREATHING NEW L I F E into the beauty we find in nature and in life's finest experiences.


My hope is that my paintings transport the viewer into their own feelings of adventure!


Kelsey here. I'm glad you made it!


I can confidently say that I am an artist, Christ follower, Enneagram 4, Young Life Leader, adventurer, skier, Denverite, climate advocate and fierce believer in people. After teaching art for five years, I recently made the leap into pursuing being an artist full time. It's been a wild ride! I couldn't be happier with the space I'm in currently.

So far, this year has been a hearty mix of painting, experimenting, diving into podcasts, finding creative community, and seeking adventure. Tossing in a little bit of creativity along the way has opened my eyes to how beautiful and lifegiving this new profession can be.


My paintings aim to share the adventure of the west through landscapes and wildlife created in bold color. I hope that my work transports the viewer to their own feelings of adventure. My work is currently displayed and for sale at the Fetch Shop in Denver and Ohana in Steamboat. 


I'm excited to continue growing my portfolio of live paintings, which I discovered thanks to a couple of dear friends. Live event painting is a fun new challenge that has been opening unforeseen doors. I'm choosing to live by faith, and not by fear. Stay tuned for an eclectic mix of live event paintings in 2020.


My paintbrush is increasingly becoming an extension of my arm and I'm thrilled to share all of the beautiful things we paint this year. I can guarantee they will be born of a colorful palette and bring life and joy.


Welcome! Take a look around!
