"More of a general practitioner than a specialist…"
Kelly Witmer is a multi-disciplinary artist splitting her time between Los Angeles and Joshua Tree, CA. Kelly works in various forms of paint as well as printmaking, ceramics, and glass work. She often combines her interests in 2D and 3D with sculptural canvases and installations. Underlying themes are the usual suspects of memory, irony, media, loss and the wonders of nature and science. Born in a small Amish town in Pennsylvania, Kelly received her BFA from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia with additional studies at Parsons School of Design in Paris, France. Kelly has done several public art commissions through the city of Los Angeles, as well as Santa Rosa, CA. She has taken many private as well as commercial painting commissions, working with designers and art directors for film sets or retail stores such as Urban Outfitters. Kelly relishes the challenge of new projects, thoroughly enjoying the research, planning and excuse to work with new mediums.
