Megan Kelly was born in Asheville, North Carolina. She received her Bachelors in Fine Arts at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a specialization in Illustration in 2010. Megan works predominantly in painting, both large and small scale. She has participated in solo and group exhibitions with her smaller work. She has also painted several murals all over the east coast, including Asheville, Miami, St Pete, and Memphis, to name a few.
Megan’s current work focuses on systematic, ornate, and repetitive circular shapes that emphasize color and combine varying patterns. The simplicity of these basic elements become intricate and important for her when reproduced. They are intended to be universally beautiful and easy on the eye of the viewer.
Megan is currently working and living in Asheville, North Carolina. Her studio is located at 474 Haywood Gallery and Studios.
