About Kelly Hoernig
I have been an artist my entire life. It started with that wondrous box of crayons and today it is still challenging me to grow, discover and explore anything that fascinates my creative side. I have been an artist full time for the past 22 years leading me through the adventure of designing patterns, books and magazine articles, as well as exhibiting and teaching throughout the United States. Online teaching has opened up a new International world, one I am excited to explore. Never one to stay idle for too long, I have pursued pen and ink, drawing, acrylics, colored pencils, mixed media, photography and writing. It has been a wonderful journey so far and I cannot wait to see what the muse throws my way next.
On finding inspiration?
For me it comes from everywhere. Nature mostly but it could be the way the light comes through a window, raindrops on a blade of grass or a bumble bee caught in the crab apple blossoms. Words also thrill me beyond belief. If I hear one I like, at the moment it is serendipity, I think about what it would look like in an art piece. Believe me, a dictionary and thesaurus are always close by.
Some things you might not know about me.
I have a very curious nature. Work best by moonlight. Create because I have to. Am inspired by the details. Chase the muse everywhere. Excited by nature. Love a challenge.
