Ms. Kelland is a portrait artist, illustrator, and fine artist. Her studies at the School of Visual Arts have included graphic design, illustrating children's books, and portraiture. Her training in portraits was performed under the tutelage of Elena Caravela. Ms. Kelland focuses upon capturing the essence of her subjects and, where appropriate, she enjoys using her imagination to portray whimsy and reality. She paints in both acrylics and oils, and works on commission. Samples of her work are included in this web site. Her portraits are perfect gifts to celebrate graduations, anniversaries, birthdays, or that other special occasion. She works from photographs, so your gift can be a complete surprise. Her portraits represent enduring rememberances, and for obvious reasons, are far superior to photographs, lasting long after mere photos fade. She prides herself on making the portrait of a loved one both affordable and memorable -- something to celebrate and enrich the life of your child, parent, spouse, or significant other. Because Ms. Kelland loves animals of all sorts, she is especially adept at painting that favorite pet -- from cats to horses! Contact her to discuss both the possibilities and the cost.
