Kelly Singleton biography:
Kelly Singleton creates paintings that reflect her love for wildlife and the places they inhabit. Her paintings are the result of many hours spent observing and photographing wildlife, followed by many more hours behind her easel striving to breathe life into her subjects.
Born and raised in Maryland, Singleton has held a life-long passion for art and nature. Her talent was recognized and encouraged early on. She received her formal education from the Maryland Institute College of Art where she graduated with a BFA in illustration. She has furthered her training by taking workshops with artists she admires.
Singleton makes frequent trips into local and national parks of the western United States to observe and photograph wildlife. These trips fuel inspiration for new work. The artist feels the best part of being a wildlife painter is the fieldwork. She hopes that her excitement for the natural world shines through in her art and that it also conveys the importance of preserving nature.
She is a Signature Member of the Society of Animal Artists and has won several of their awards. Noteworthy exhibitions include: Birds in Art, Art and the Animal, Small Works Great Wonders, Night of Artists, American Art in Miniature,The Scottsdale Salon of Fine Art, The Bosque Classic, and Art of the Animal Kingdom.
Singleton and her husband, Jimmy currently reside in Colorado.
