Biography

Kelly began beading as a means of expressing her ties to her culture and land while in an urban setting. Her fascination with the beauty and intricacy of flowers influences her pieces. Kelly's previous vocation as a therapist found her incorporating art therapy into work with families. Now, as things often come full circle, each piece created is a therapeutic, healing medicine for her.
