Hi there! I’m Kelly Kautz: digital marketing strategist by day and artist by night.
I grew up surrounded by art—when I was a kid, my mother quit her job as a nurse to pursue watercolor painting. I accompanied her to countless art shows and lessons. But I only began painting regularly in 2019.
Today I work across a range of mediums. I use oils and acrylic to capture scenes of quiet contemplation. I use mixed media and collage to explore abstract compositions and color palettes. And I occasionally dabble in watercolor, though I mostly leave that to Mom.
In the past few years my artwork has been exhibited online and at fine art shows across the country. See a list of recent exhibitions below, or check out some of my paintings.
