WELCOME! I'm Kelly
I'm a painter, teacher, dreamer, and healer with paint.
I believe that in each one of us are seeds of creativity waiting to be discovered.
It is crucial to our well-being and is often forgotten and ignored. As children
we express freely, we dance, paint, play a musical instrument and more-
all acceptable because we are young.
But then what happens?
We grow up and lose the connection with ourselves, we take on too much, we
get tired, lose our luster...we get dull and lost in the duty of life.
For three decades I've been combining my love of art and teaching together to guide individuals in discovering their inner joy, their soul's calling. It's time to feel and express freely again, it's time to heal. It's time to explore on canvas and get messy. It's time to break the rules together.
Me and my daughter Kendra
I am a classically trained artist and a graduate of the prestigious Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. For 30+ years
I have had the opportunity to develop and teach my own fine art curriculum to children and adults at art galleries, counseling facilities, in client homes and now at my art studio "ArtHouse" in Saukville, WI. My classes are nurturing, fun and rely on techniques that go back to my years at MIAD. I also mix in a great deal of love, patience and laughter!

What is Intentional Creativity?
Currently, I am attending the Color of Woman School training to become
an Intentional Creativity Teacher, Intentional Creativity Coach and Red Thread
Women's Circle facilitator, graduating in fall. Intentional Creativity is a process that
combines right brain/left brain expression with intention to support growth
and healing of past wounds and creative blocks. Clients explore their creative
essence, listening deeply to that essence through guided visualization and
expressing on the canvas what wants to be revealed with paint. With the IC
process, individuals heal and transform themselves. We use acrylic, watercolor
paint and other materials on canvas or paper, inspired by guided meditations, journaling, music, chocolate and sparkle! You'll discover your own symbols and keys, to make each project a template for healing and inspiration.
Red Thread Women's Circle
Do you enjoy connecting with other like-minded women? Are you longing for
sisterhood in a nurturing and non-judgemental environment where you can
laugh but also be a witness for others?
A Red Thread Circle is a powerful container for transforming our stories into
possibilities, moving us out of isolation and into connection. The circle is not
defined by religion, color or race but defined by love and acceptance for others.
A Red Thread Circle begins with the passing of a physical ball of red thread that
is wrapped around each woman's wrist to represent our deep interconnection,
and the red in our blood that is traceable all the way back to ancient stars that
were the beginning of all creation. From this place of recognition, we move into
inquiry and sharing. Each woman present is able to speak her truth, while the
other women bear witness and receive the inspiration and beauty that resonates. This is a powerful time of sharing, laughing, moving stuck energy, opening the heart to healing, and learning from one another! I provide coffee, herbal teas and chocolate at each circle, however, you may share an offering or snack at anytime if you feel called! Gatherings are held in my studio or my home on the last Tuesday evening of the month from 6:00 - 8:00pm.
