“Walk With Me”

by 

Sandra Kelly

 

Sandra Kelly is a visual artist residing in Doonane, Co. Laois.  Her sole focus with her art is to portray her viewpoint of life and nature through emotion and colour.  Her medium of choice is acrylic paint but she also explores oils, watercolours, chalks, pastels and other mixed media.

Sandra has maintained a lifelong passion for art and creativity with interests in decor, floristry and crafts as well as poetry and writing.  In more recent years, Sandra decided to explore painting and mark making and began to make room in her life for active participation in the evolution of her artistic expression.

Life can change in a moment and our ability to adapt, to cope, to lose, to focus and to overcome is what helps us in the pursuit of the real beauty that life has to offer.  Sandra’s body of work is a direct response to the unprecedented times we are experiencing and encapulates the many stages of this time period and the emotions it has evoked.  Moving through her work are feelings of fear, duty, worry and sadness all the way to the opposite end of the spectrum where discovery, gratitude and hope dominate.  Sandra’s intention is to portray a sense of moving forward seeing more beauty, living simpler and easier lives.

Sandra wishes to enhance her skills by using new and differing media and techniques.  She hopes to portray with deeper intensity, the stunning countryside surrounding her and to make trips with her family to seek out beauty further afield.  Also, Sandra hopes to develop friendships within the artistic community and to be part of a support structure with like minded creators, both locally and nationally.

The exhibition will run at The Gallery in Abbeyleix Library for the month of December
