About

Kelley Booze finds inspiration in the areas that have been forgotten, overlooked, or neglected. She is constantly constructing visual memories of an environment and how that reflects in human emotion. Through sketching and drawing on site, she begins piecing together the essence of a place before working in the studio. It is there that the sense of memory and mood is captured in oil paint.  There are often elements of commonly overlooked objects such as utility poles, fences and guardrails. Roads, sidewalks and powerlines are a metaphor for the ever-present connections that are no longer utilized. Kelley graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2009 from the Columbus College of Art and Design. Since then she has been teaching painting, drawing and other various classes and workshops. Her work is part of private and public collections in the U.S., France, Germany, and Israel.
