A MORE PERSONAL VIEW:
I’ve recently hit a major turning point in my work for the future. It really stregthens my artistic persona and makes my work more recognizable and unique. It just screams “This is Courtney Kelly!” “This is a glimpse, a snapshot of this whole world that lives inside my head.” I am an Artist and I realize I never could have been anything but this.
I am a proud member of Etsy for Animals (EFA): Artists Helping Animals efaartistshelpinganimals.org

I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona where I currently live and paint. Though I have lived my whole life in the Southwest my artwork does not reflect that style, rather it is a modern yet whimsical collection of the creatures both real and imagined that inspire me!
I am currently a Resident Artist of the Silver Sea in Tucson on 4th avenue. My artwork is also featured at Dirty Dawgs, Avalon, and Sunset Interiors I’ve had showing in Tucson, Bisbee and most recently San Diego. You can also view it on my websites www.courtsart.com, www.greyhoundsart.com and facebook/courtsart.
I feel that God has given me an amazing talent to be able to create the Artwork that I love so much and try to give back through support of several charitable organizations such as Southern Arizona Aids Foundation, Greyhound Rescue, The Humane Society of Southern Arizona, Hope Animal Shelter, and Singles Serving Orphans.
