Kelly Ventura is a Michigan-based watercolor artist who brings her love of nature into the home with the expressive strokes of her paint brush. After college, Kelly moved to New York, then Connecticut as a studio assistant for boutique wallpaper and rug companies. It was here that Kelly discovered surface design and how to bring a sketch to life on a product. After five years designing product for a gift and home wholesaler, Kelly began building her namesake brand and a list of freelance clients.
Nature is a constant source of inspiration for Kelly; with its changing seasons, there is always a delightful surprise to capture. Color, texture, light, flowers and leaves are reoccurring themes in Kelly’s work, which she brings to life through her well-known gestural style. With natural motifs and earthy color schemes, the artist’s watercolor images translate beautifully to decor, fabrics and wallpapers for the home.
In her spare time, the artist paints, thrifts, collects chairs, and enjoys spending time with her husband and three young boys.
