Kelly Weber

Kelly Weber draws on the energy and emotional connections to people, architecture, and the plant life around her to develop her artwork. Her medium of choice is watercolor, which she first worked with during her studies at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, Illinois. Kelly’s process is not limited to painting. She will often collage with pieces from her own ripped or cut artwork, as well as found objects, as this successfully blends her emotions and influences.
