Kelly Mellos

United States

Kelly Mellos is an award-winning fine artist with a mission and a message. She uses the power of art to break down barriers, build trust and compassion, encourage risk-taking, celebrate interconnectedness and encourage audiences eager to reach their greatest creative potential.

Kelly’s work aims to reveal the life force of her subjects to viewers, aspiring to bring humanity closer together and to the planet. Her teaching encourages students to strive for this in their own lives and work, and her efforts with Hands of Peace and Rotary International focus on spreading this message globally.

A commitment to artistic excellence, grounded in the representational art traditions of 19th century European Ateliers, is the foundation of Kelly’s work. Kelly’s portrait, figurative and landscape work has shown in national galleries and museums, as well as international exhibitions.
