Kelli Scott Kelley

Using mixed media, Kelli Scott Kelley explores the relationships humans have with the animals that share their planet and the exploitation of them. Kelley’s provocative and message-laden work blurs the line between human and animal. The inspiration for much of her work stemmed from the reading of children’s books and fables to her son. Kelley works in painting, sculpture, printmaking, video and performance.

Since moving back to her hometown of Baton Rouge, Kelley has been teaching art at Louisiana State University, where she is now an Associate Professor of Painting. Kelley has shown her work across the country including Hooks Epstein Gallery, Mississippi University for Women and the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art.
