Featuring Solo Artist Danelle Kelly

A collection of dynamic oil paintings featuring fantastic animals from ancient literature!

Animals of all kinds have fascinated Danelle since childhood, and it was natural for her to meld her interest with a burgeoning passion for making art. Each piece employs Danelle's powerful use of color. The vibrant compositions are intended to bring the viewer a deeper understanding or a fresh perspective on each animal she brushes onto the canvas. 

Danelle Kelly studied art at both Oregon State University and at the Grey’s School of Art in Scotland 

When asked why she paints, Danelle Kelly quotes American painter Marsden Hartley, "I paint to share that which exists between me and the object,” Pictured here in her studio with Greatest Shark.
