About the Artist: Kelly Oakes
Kelly Oakes is a portrait painter, painting in oils both commissions and people that inspire her to paint them. She mostly paints from life, where she can experience the interplay between the model and the artist in the quiet of the studio. It is there that she can bring the essence of the model’s soul to the canvas.
Oakes has taught art for 20 years to all ages and abilities. She has a BFA from The Maryland Institute of Art, as well as studied at The Arts Students League in NYC. She enjoys sharing her passion for creating and appreciating art. She recently relocated with her husband to Hillsborough, NC. Kelly now has a studio at Eno Mill Artist Studios in Hillsborough, where she continues to paint commissions and teach.
