"I've been drawing horses all my life...", she said "Mom has a BA in art education, so she drew with me and encouraged me from an early age...I've always had a special love for horses, and so wanting to draw and photograph them came naturally to me. In high school, I painted stall signs with images of each individual horse for my 4-H club to hand during horse shows." Now Kelley commissions pet portraits. She grew up in Nokesville, VA (Prince William County_. In 2006 she moved to Lebanon, VA where she currently lives with her fiance', rescue dog and three horses.
