Kelsey Wilson

Medium: Paint

Booth #: GS38

Artist bio: Kelsey Wilson is an artist from Nevada, Iowa. She studied illustration and painting at Savannah College of Art and Design and now works to achieve her ongoing studio mission to bring “Joy through Art.”

Botanical paintings play a significant role in her practice and these paintings often serve environmental education purposes. These highly detailed works artfully describe and revere the individual imperfections of a subject rather than striving to depict a photographic, ideal version of each plant species.

Kelsey’s art promotes peaceful attentiveness to the beauty around us.

Artist Statement: The artist uses a variety of watercolor techniques to create highly detailed paintings on archival papers. These botanical subjects are both scientific and artful in nature. They accurately describe the anatomy of the plants as well as strive to elevate and preserve the beauty of our natural world.
