Kellie's mural in downtown Ithaca
During the 2020 quarantine, Kellie has been working with the U.S. Botanic Garden on a selection of family art workshops, visit https://www.usbg.gov/
to view past workshops, as well as upcoming art workshops and tutorials!
Kellie uses traditional art techniques to create modern botanical illustrations, public art, murals and large scale botanical paintings. She is inspired by beautiful native plants, nature, trees, and wildlife that she observes on her travels with her husband and little furry dog. Her passion in life is to create beautiful pieces of artwork, both small and large. With her public murals she hopes to inspire the local communities to garden with native plantings to create habitats and food resources for our native wildlife. Originally from Delaware, Kellie spent a lot of her childhood frolicking through gardens and drawing flowers, which lead her to receive a bachelor’s degree from University of Delaware with a double major in Landscape Horticulture and Plant Science in 2009. Along with being an artist, Kellie also works as a Landscape Designer for her own company called Strawberry Fields LLC, creating unique an native landscapes for clients in the DC area! Kellie continues to work in the horticulture and art field, expanding her inspiration and artistic expression.
Kellie has installed over a dozen murals in Ithaca, New York and Washington, D.C. Located in Washington D.C., Kellie is excited to share her work throughout the city. Her most recent exhibit was one of her large-scale sunflower murals featured at the U.S. Botanic Gardens in 2018, part of the exhibit 'Wall Flowers: Botanical Murals.
