Kelly Gatchell Hartley

I am a mixed medium artist who is inspired by Mexican culture (especially Day of the Dead), other mixed media and assemblage artists, and today’s throwaway society. My art focuses on telling stories and I have steadily been moving into a more environmentally considerate way of creating art using found and recycled objects. Putting together each work is an organic process where pieces are placed together until they start to tell me a story. I then elaborate on the work until it feels complete. My mission is to create art that tells a story while showing that one person’s trash is a thing of beauty in the hands of another.
