Because "I made that..." and "thank you" is apparently not an appropriate artist statement, I've tried to put together something a little more informative.
I've painted for most of my life--continuing through college where I received a BFA in 1986. An unrelated masters degree in Social Work from Tulane followed. I've been making a living as an artist for more than 20 years now. I am filled with gratitude for that fact daily, as I have learned that I have a personality suited for little else. With eclectic practical skills that include woodworking, I make the frames and/or surrounds for most of my pieces.
Whether little old ladies, cows, roosters, fish or New Orleans sights and scenes, I try to infuse a story or a bit of personality into my work. I hope that it makes the work more memorable. I know that it makes it more fun for me to go to work every day.
I make everything in my New Orleans studio and sell at select galleries throughout the US. Visit my website or artistkellymagee on Facebook and instagram.
