Kelly Walker landed in Charm City in 1994 by coincidence, grace and luck.
Hired as an apprentice for a premier decorative painting company in 2000, she was instantly attracted to the subtle sophistication of interior design, the atmospheric and tonal quality of various paint finishes, and the ability of art to transform and dictate a space.
An artist of the self taught variety, Kelly is influenced by the many layers of Baltimore’s rich history, as well as the experience of being one among many of the characters and energies that live here.
Gritty and elegant, intellectual and simple, Baltimore is, by nature, a multitude of layered mediums.
Kelly's canvas’ mimic her restless pursuit as a self starter, her artistic development in Baltimore, and the juxtaposition of aesthetic design and internal drive.
This current body of work reflects her ongoing commitment to surface quality and color, and her total surrender to the inherent power of the mediums with which she works.
