Kelly Degnan is an abstract artist whose large-scale, sophisticated work has garnered a dedicated following. Her layered, vibrant paintings are heavily influenced by the Abstract Expressionism movement and have been featured in both solo and group shows and corporate collections across the region. Born in Ohio, Kelly has created art in various forms her whole life. After moving to Boulder, Colorado, she held corporate roles in regional advertising agencies and national publishing firms. Her experiences with photo shoots, styling and editing have influenced her use of texture and type treatment in her work. Kelly’s dramatic fields of color and sketched, graffiti-like works have been compared to the iconic painter, Cy Twombly. Her paintings include multiple layers and incorporate a variety of mixed media, including acrylic, oil stick, charcoal, graphite, transfers and epoxy resin, with the end effect of an internal luminosity that begs for the viewer’s attention. Kelly is constantly working towards innovative ideas for new bodies of work and continues to take on commissions for collectors. She works closely with her clients to understand their goals and preferences in order to ensure their original work exceeds expectations. Kelly works from her studio in the mountains of Boulder, Colorado.
