Kellie Day

Mixed Media / Collage

Kellie Day grew up in industrial towns in the Midwest. Visions of smoke stacks and college in the armpit of Indiana gave her a hard shove towards seeking beauty out west. A decade and a half of voraciously traveling the globe, climbing, and rangering for the U.S. Forest Service led her to settle in Ridgway, Colorado. Between her graphic design and painting studio, Kellie Day is a creative factory. ‘I would like it if every aspect of my day and life touched beauty.’ Kellie has a seven-year-old son, Chente, and two rescue dogs.

Kellie encouraged me to be really loose and free with the creative process.
