David creates marine art inspired by his years of fishing experience.
Kelly works abstractly from her feelings and from experiences that have affected her. For her non-representational abstract and landscape work, she likes to start with an unpremeditated blank canvas and let the work begin to emerge organically. She continues to build on what appears giving form to the chaos and building the piece into a painting that will hopefully, transmit a feeling to the viewer. Kelly’s most recent work is an exploration of minimalism and limited color palette.

Acrylic on canvas, combining portraiture with an automotive theme. My art features iconic personalities with the cars they owned, drove, appeared in film with, or wrote about in prose or song.

I paint with my hands (similar to what we all did as children… finger painting). It is a form of creative spiritual mediation where I allow the paintings to almost create themselves. Magic seems to happen once I pour the paint on the canvas and let my hands be guided to whatever wants to be created. Since I’m also a massage therapist, using my hands to paint is so natural for me. I love feeling the smooth coolness of the paint as I am spreading it on the pliable canvas. I get lost in the freedom and dance of this process. People tell me they feel deep relaxation and lose track of time while viewing the paintings… just like my clients say after a massage! I am fortunate to live in Maine, where every day I am inspired by nature — the ocean, sky, clouds and sunsets deeply influence my paintings.
Fun, bold abstract paintings.
