Combining photography with digital composition and editing, Kelly's "paintings" convey a unique glimpse into the many varied facets of our world, both natural and man-made, real or imagined. He enhances existing colours and emphasises textures to increase the visual and emotional impact.

His main love is wildlife and nature art, but he also enjoys compositions which involve architectural imagery. Stone, steel, concrete and glass can create curious contrasts of colour and texture, light and shadow. He especially enjoys showing the contrasts and similarities when the man-made meets the natural.

Kelly does his own photography and scans, edits and composes his "paintings" on his Macintosh computer, then prints the high resolution images on quality artist canvas. He lives in Centennial, Colorado. A lifelong artist, and a wildlife advocate, Kelly donates a portion of all sales of his wildlife art to animal conservation organisations.
