Meet the Artist
Hi! I'm Kelly Edwards.
An abstract artist, sharing her time between London and Bath, my work is inspired by the contrast of life between town and country.
I work with acrylic and mixed media, painting abstract pieces with bold colour and rich texture.
The Bird Talks was created, not only to sell my art work, but as a pit stop where like minded individuals could swing by to read my (hopefully comedic) blog and follow me through the ups and downs of my creative endeavours.
HOT OFF THE PRESS!
What are we talking about this week...
This week I want to tell you about a recent visit I paid to the incredible Hampton Court Palace. The infamous home, on the bank of the River Thames, of Tudor King Henry VIII.
Something you may not know about me yet is that I am a total history geek. Architecture, History, Art, Art History, that's my thang! It had been a dream of mine to visit this place for eons. I finally took my opportunity on a glorious sunny day and I was not disappointed!
My tip of the week is to get yourself down there and take a look at the jaw-dropping murals of Antonio Verrio and Sir James Thornhill on the ceilings of the King's Grand Staircase and the Queen's Great Bed Chamber. Verrio is credited with introducing baroque style mural painting to England. I can honestly say I've never witnessed anything like it, extending from the walls onto the ceilings, they are true masterpieces.

After a VERY quiet 2020, things are looking up! I'm excited to reveal I've been asked to feature in
House & Garden Magazine's Spring / Summer Campaign as part of their 'Art Edit'. Pick up your copy on 4th March 2021.
Roy's Art Fair
Sadly, due to the Coronavirus crisis, Roy's Art Fair at the OXO Tower was postponed. I'm looking forward to attending future shows, post pandemic!
