About Kelly

"The meaning in life is to find your gift. The purpose in life is to give it away." - Picasso

I grew up constructing elaborate doll houses to play with, but I hardly got around to playing - I kept building, and building, and building.

I exist existentially for the most part, pondering and ruminating the truths of life and coming up with questions for everything. Apparently, I've been this way since I was little according to my parents. Boy, I really lucked out with them.

Having this support and platform to create helps me achieve a mental stability and validates my emotions & identity. While I identify as an artist, I am not only an artist. I learned the importance of not placing so much pressure on something that isn't fixed, and there's so much in life I want to be alongside an artist: a good partner, a good sibling, a good daughter, a good aunt, a good friend, and a good stranger. However, I feel like I don't have that stickiness to me that connects me with many people. I am an empathetic person and people with BPD often are, ironically. As much as I think or perceive an interaction as positive, I come face-to-face with the reality that it wasn't all rainbows and sunshine and it confuses me. As someone who took note of the "if you have a problem with everyone, its you," I have been in therapy for nearly a decade and have come very far. But, the other reality is that technically, it is me.

I am learning to love her, though. While that is something I may identify with, it isn't all of me. I have also learned that everyone has something, and we don't need to be ashamed of it, just aware and willing to adjust.

I sometimes struggle to define my style because I genuinely have love in my heart for so many styles and am drawn to speak through those styles in sporadic ways. However, I’ll often define it as a combination of eclectic, minimal, fine-abstact-deco.

If you're in the area, you can view some select pieces of my art at Art for the People Gallery located in Austin, Texas! I do markets locally and post about them on my social media accounts. Follow my Instagram at @braggaboutitartistry for updates on when you can see my work up close and personal.
