About ME


Artist, Designer, Muralist, & Art Director

I love creating colorful, engaging, & thought-provoking designs within my art & mural work, allowing the space surrounding them, and the people viewing them to find something in common to connect with. 

Kelle grew up in New York, Pennsylvania, & then her formative years in San Francisco. She spent time traveling the West Coast, delivering aid through Central America, spending time in Bali, Japan, Iceland, Spain, & India where she gained a love of nature & culture.

She attended Penn State University & the University of California at Berkeley attaining a degree in Sociology with a focus on Pop Culture. She later went to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh where she attained a degree in Design.

After finishing her degrees she moved to the rust belt wilds of Cleveland to work for American Greetings as an art director & designer for over 13 years. She art directed, designed, & illustrated social expression products & brands with a focus on creative brand development, trends, & innovation. 

I love creating Art with a unique twist of PLAYFUL HUMOR

When not working for clients she spends her free time creating fine art, traveling to off-the-beaten-path international spaces, amusing herself with strange animal facts, hiking, skiing, (anything outdoors), studying yoga & wellness but also whiskey, : ) trying to keep her plants alive, failing at norm core, collecting but never remembering dad jokes, pending cat lady, & is always on the look out for the perfect peanut butter & jelly sandwich.
