Charlotte Kelly    










morning II


Charlotte Kelly


Charlotte Kelly was born and lives in Galway. While practising as a nurse she completed her N.D.A.D.in 2002. In June 2005 she resigned from her nursing career to paint and draw full time.


Drawing is the key factor to all of her work. Strong influences of Sean Mc Sweeney, Patrick Collins and Tony O'Malley are evident in her painting.

Charlotte's work has evolved from the traditional to the abstract. These days she paints as the need is so strong that it cannot be ignored. She works mainly in oils and nearly always in silence. Charlotte finds it spiritually gratifying to express herself through her paintings, working with the oil paints, mixing the colours, considering the texture and letting her imagination take over. Initially her work is immediate, covering the canvas vigorously, letting it sit, then nurturing it until it reaches its full potential.
