Kelly Hood…painter of the natural world, is a full-time artist who works in oils and mixed media. She has developed her own unique style of photo-realism and pays extreme attention to detail. Kelly has sold her work to private collectors and the general public.
“I am a contemporary realist painter with a constant need to paint the things in life that go un-noticed and which are often most interesting and beautiful. I believe that if we took the time to look more closely at things we would truly have our eyes opened to the beauty in even the most mundane…. I believe in painting what I see, catching a beautiful scene for my clients to cherish for life. I spend long hours in my studio and I am building a reputation as an artist who pushes super-realism to the extreme, with great attention to detail while catching the light and beauty in each piece of work I do”.
She began painting professionally in 2001 and has been exhibiting and selling her work since. She paint’s in Oil paint & Mixed Media (Flint, Zinc Flakes, Italian Marble and pumice) on Linen Canvas, in a style that is realistic and inspiring. “Mother Nature is my favourite artist and all of my images are inspired by her work”.
