Kelly Edwards is an abstract Artist and the Founder of ‘The Bird Talks’.
Originally from Bristol, Kelly spent the best part of 10 years travelling the globe as a Yacht Stewardess and Personal Assistant, before settling back to life in the UK. Although art took a backseat to her career for a long time, Kelly has always been naturally creative, choosing to express her passion for fun and all things brightly coloured through her personal style and event organising.
Once rooted in London, she felt a burning desire to create again. After a year of experimenting and learning her craft she decided to take her hobby seriously and pursue a future in art.
Kelly thrives on painting abstract with thick textured, bold acrylics. Her work invokes feeling through the movement of colour and depth in her pieces. The thing she enjoys the most about painting is hearing what her viewers see and feel in her creations, rather than forcing her own interpretation through. She believes that art should be a personal experience for the onlooker.
In 2018, ‘The Bird Talks’ was born as a platform to communicate her love of art, crafts, travel and storytelling with a likeminded audience.
Now splitting her time between London and Bath, the juxtaposition of life between town and country provides inspiration for much of Kelly's new work. She loves to meet other artists locally and enjoys taking part in art fairs, recently showcasing her collection in 'Roy's Art Fair' at the esteemed Truman Brewery in Brick Lane.
Kelly is excited to be taking part in House & Garden Magazine's 'Art Edit' for their Spring / Summer Campaign 2021, she was thrilled to be invited to share her work in a world renowned Conde Nast publication.
Through her blog and news feature Kelly reviews and shares advice and tips on a range of art related topics from art supplies to books, places to visit, artists, galleries and exhibitions, travel and more.
