Jenny Kelley (b. 1983) received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design, which she attended on a full merit scholarship. Kelley specializes in floral still life and she is passionate about painting from life observation.
Kelley’s still life paintings explore the contrast between the enduring qualities of the painted image and the transient beauty of flowers. In painting flowers from life, Kelley has become particularly aware of the intensity of a single moment, and she aims to evoke some of the wonder of the feeling of a fragile instant in her work. Her paintings also incorporate antiques, one-of-a-kind pieces, and a variety of textiles in order to create scenes that are at once casual and studied.
An award-winning artist, Kelley is a member of the Copley Society of Art. Her work has been shown in numerous prestigious shows and competitions, including at the Guild of Boston Artists, at The Bennington Center for the Arts, and with American Women Artists.
