Official Bio

Kelly found out she was destined to ‘draw things for a living’ when she was punished in kindergarten for drawing a huge mural under a table during nap time, using the stumpy crayon nubs discarded on the classroom floor (true story).

Fast forward a bit and she studied graphic design and graduated with her BFA from Louisiana State University, and landed a job at a local advertising agency. In 2014 Kelly decided to try her hand in the world of freelance design and fell in love with being her own boss and working on projects that she really vibes with, especially branding, illustration, watercolor painting, and hand lettering.
