Kelley Hensing

Kelley's artwork is inspired by the mysterious. She grew up in a house by the woods, spending much of her time going on adventures into the wilderness. Her images portray dreams, fears and fables, while seeking to transcend a world of chaos. Her visual language combines nature, spirituality and archetypal figures to form her own narratives both beautiful and symoblic.

Kelley earned a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2001, and her MFA in 2010 from the School of Visual Arts in NYC. Her first major show was in 2014 with Last Rites Gallery, NYC. She also shows with Lovetts Gallery in Tulsa, OK and at various art conventions and fairs throughout the year. Besides creating paintings and drawings, her favorite projects include an illustrated card game for Atlas Games “Lost in R’lyeh”, custom-painted murals and fashion clothing for Marc Jacobs, and her most recent project for Suntup Editions, creating interior illustrations for "Edgar Allan Poe: Poetry and Tales".
