Artist Statement

Using photography as her chosen medium, her work is created not just from pixels, but from moments in time. Like echoes, each piece is a series of moments of real life, telling the stories of inspiration, time and possibilities. History, mythologies, lullabies and fairytales all play a part in our daily lives, and Kelsi uses those memories to tell her stories. 


About the Artist

Based out of Navarre, Florida, Kelsi has had her work in a number of juried exhibits and publications in the southeastern region of the United States. As a new contemporary artist, Kelsi enjoys exploring new and unique ways to accomplish telling her stories, including painting, sculpting, and sometimes setting things on fire.
