My name is Kelly Yeomans, I’m an Illustration Artist based in SW Wisconsin.
I work primarily in drawing and painting, as well as some digital. I live in a beautiful region of limestone bluffs, river valleys, wooded hills, and farmland pastures, which is the primary source of inspiration for my art.
I grew up in the glorious 80’s in a Michigan suburb outside of Detroit and graduated from Grand Valley State University in 2002 with a BFA in Illustration. During my time in college I studied a term at the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland, which proved to be a life changing experience.
Growing up, I spent most of my time outside. As a young adult I was constantly pursuing outdoor adventures and exploring remote areas. Like my love for the outdoors, creating art was something that I’ve always done and seemed to be a natural expression of myself from an early age.
After college my career led me into graphic design, and since then I have worked for a variety of clients and employers in graphic design, photography, and video production. Additional professional experience includes visual display, printmaking, and ceramics studio painting.
All of my experiences have matured me as an artist and person, ultimately bringing me to the place I am today, which is right back where I started; a girl playing in the woods and drawing the images that dance across her mind.
When I’m not working on my art I can be found managing my gardens and woods and enjoying the outdoors. When I finally spend all of my creative and physical energy and need to sit, I pursue reading, writing, and learning.
