Kelly Spencer is a multidisciplinary visual artist from New Zealand, with a tendency to travel.
Kelly’s creative style is characterised by bright fresh colour palettes and curvaceous forms, meticulously hand crafted lettering, and illustrative elements of flora and fauna. Her work often serves as a platform to promote the conservation of our natural environment. Kelly’s portfolio includes murals/street art, illustration (editorial, promotional, books), sign painting, apparel graphics, festival & gig branding, installation, identity design and more.
Kelly has been a feature artist in street art festivals throughout NZ and the world. She has spoken at a handful of conferences including Typism on the Gold Coast, 2018. Kelly was the curator of the 2019 activation of Sea Walls - Artists for Oceans Tairāwhiti NZ, bringing 20 fresh murals to the town of Gisborne from renown international artists. In addition to her freelance work, Kelly is also one of 5 directing members of The League of Live Illustrators - a lively team of graphic facilitators for hire.
Kelly does not engage in conversation before consuming coffee in the mornings but is henceforth a social creature. Things that make her happy include: chardonnay, sunshine, the sound of tropical rain, scuba diving, and patting other people’s dogs.
