As a graphic designer, Kelly spends her days pushing pixels on a screen. But at night, she gets to work with her hands, creating calligraphy with a dip pen and screenprinting. Her process begins and ends on paper—when a word or phrase sticks in her mind, she’ll draw the letters over and over in pencil, sketching until she’s happy with the layout. Once finalized, the letters are inked, scanned, digitized and transferred back onto paper through a laser print or screenprint process. Her passions and interests are evident in the quotes and phrases incorporated into her artwork—a love of travel, passion for fine art and classic fictional romances—all lofty pursuits in our book.
