Kelly Marra

Painter, Sculptor, Jewelry Designer

As a child, the renderings of authors and illustrators, such as Richard Scarry and Dr. Seuss, encouraged an innate desire to draw and create art. This passion drives me to explore diverse mediums and art forms through continual study and practice.

After studying the Impressionists intensely, I found their struggles and desires most relatable. In reflection, my current work focuses on capturing moments that speak to my soul – the vulnerability of a performer’s debut, the thrill of an impromptu performance or an extraordinary sunset – while experimenting with brushwork, and the boundaries of my medium’s accepted limits.
