About The Artist


My creativity has fought its way out of me since birth. I have tried to “be” other things, but I always come back to me, the artist. Over a lifetime, I have learned to embrace it, channel it, and find outlets to put it out into the world. I am primarily a mixed media artist, which in plain terms, I put “stuff” on my artwork.  It must have some 3D element to it.  A sparkle, a gem, a shell, shards of glass, the list goes on.  Anything not nailed down may find its way to a piece.  I found an unlikely niche in painting and adorning mermaids on wood and I have spent the last four years bringing mermaids “to life” in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. It’s an amazing feeling, and a validating one, when my art began to sell.  For actual money and to hangs on someone’s wall.  I know a piece of me resides in it, my struggles and my triumphs,

because they are engrained in every brush stroke. 

Art IS therapy.  I am still discovering who I am in my personal life, in this body I was gifted, but what I do know is what I am. 

I am an artist.

Peace and love,

Kelly E. Claeys
