Colleen Kelsey is an artist whose work begins in drawing, and concentrates also in painting and fibers. Her artwork explores the modern relationships that exists in the self and community. In the most recent painting series Kelsey studies the interaction of color in compressed spaces as she depicts single figures or figure couples. Years drawing from observation exhibits confidence in execution and approach in these invented paintings. To follow Colleen Kelsey's studio practice please visit her Instagram page.
