ARTIST BIO – JEN KELSEY
Jen Kelsey is an Abstract painter whose influences and favorite artists include Hans Hoffman, Charles Duchamp, Pablo Picasso and Frida Kahlo.

Kelsey has a BA in Art with an emphasis in Painting and Photography from Ohio University.

Kelsey utilizes the elements of contrast, color, line and texture to create personal emotional portraits.

Her paintings are a visualization of the artist’s world and feelings.
Kelsey uses predominately Acrylic and Charcoal. She likes working at a quick pace to accurately capture her mood and
intensity. She definitely considers her work a cathartic experience.

Early works often portrayed a young still woman amidst an inhospitable landscape. Recent works, often have left out the contour of the woman, but the fury of the landscape remains.

Artistic philosophy-Art is energy. Kelsey prefers art that makes an impact on the audience. To her, a successful piece leaves the viewer feeling something. She prefers to create and experience art where you feel the breath, movement, and soul of the artist.
