Based out of Nelson, BC, Stephanie Kellett is a full-time visual artist who uses beauty as a doorway into more difficult topics of connection and loss, ecological grief, and spirit of place. Informed deeply by the landscapes around her, Stephanie often takes multiple week immersion trips into the wilderness for new inspiration, stories, and transformative experiences to create work from. Primarily a painter, Stephanie is currently exploring other forms of visual expression in the form of video and performance art.
Having had many solo exhibitions within the Kootenay region of British Columbia since she began to root herself there in 2009, most notably Kootenay Gallery of Art, Gallery 2, and Oxygen Art Centre, Stephanie has also created murals for the Nelson International Mural Festival, ArtsWells Festival of All Things Art, Re-Imagine Street Art Festival in Penticton, and private businesses in the Kootenay region. She completed a Diploma in Fine Arts at Okanagan University of British Columbia in 2003, and a Degree in Art History at the University of Victoria in 2008.
