Kelly is currently teaching a full time K-12 Art Teacher in Northern Montana, working with artist of all ages. She is still making her artwork, deeply influenced by combining technology and the natural world.
“My experiences in the UM School of Art set a firm foundation for my future, more than I ever realized while I was enrolled. The inclusive studio experiences and relations with art venues in Missoula gave me a wealth of real experience, a skill repertoire many of my art teaching colleagues cannot compare to. By graduation my robust knowledge of studio practice gave me the ability to pick up and use almost any tools at my disposal. The BFA program at UM made me an expert in my field with hands-on experience. And from the diverse, real studio experiences I received in class, I was well prepared to function in public and private studios alike for the generation of my own work.”
