Kelly is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the University of Wisconsin at Madison and a Presidential Merit Scholar.
She makes her way as an artist, and has been working with glass since 1997.
She has her undergraduate degree (BFA) is in Fabrics, but she explores glass colors/pigments, as well as the function of glass.
Her fascination with glass blowing was born in the various classes taken late in her schooling. She is one of the CO-Owners of the Lincoln City Glass Center on the Central Oregon Coast. Don’t be surprised or disappointed that she may not get back to you punctually. It’s not personal, after all, she is an artist.
