ABOUT THE ARTIST

KELLI 

I have always been an artist. Even when I was very young, I enjoyed painting and drawing. A few years ago, I painted my first pet portrait of a golden retriever named Max Pan. I met Max's parents volunteering for Golden Beginnings Golden Retriever Rescue in Texas. I wasn't sure I could pull it off, but I loved it and Max made a great subject.

I enjoy using acrylic paint, oil pastel, wax pastel and Prismacolor pencils on heavy watercolor paper. My favorite subject is ofcourse, the golden retriever but I have painted many different breeds- cats and birds too!
