Bobbi Kelly holds a BA in Art degree from the University of Idaho, where she was fortunate enough to have studied under outstanding instructors George Roberts and Alf Dunn. She recently retired after teaching high school art for 31 years, and moved last year from Mountain Home to Moscow. Kelly participates in juried art exhibits and festivals throughout the Northwest. Her award-winning paintings appear in private and corporate collections in both the United States and Europe.
Kelly believes it's not the subject itself that's important in a painting, but the way the subject is interpreted, presenting the viewer with a new way of thinking about ordinary things, whether those things are landscapes, still-life objects, or people. Her more abstracted images reflect a love of playful experimentation with color and design elements.
