Kelly Kennedy-Rysavy - Oils/Acrylics/Collage

Kelly Kennedy-Rysavy now resides in Tallahassee and St. George Island, Florida. Primarily a self-taught artist, she believes her real artistic growth developed with the decision to make art a fulltime commitment and has done so for more than twenty years.

Her subjects, media, techniques and perspectives vary vastly with passing time. Remarkably talented and ever inventive in a world of changing tastes, primarily her own, Kelly’s finished works are often indistinguishable as being from the same hand.
"Viewer's should enjoy art without having to ask what is or is not acceptable. It should be above all a pleasurable and emotional experience. I want to create an environment with the canvas where the viewer can feel comfortable yet drawn in. Each piece carries its own message- the beginning of a fantasy or a meditation on form, light or color. The mystery creates the excitement.”
