Every month we like to spread the love by sending a 1 gallon kit to a couple of artists who have tagged us on Instagram ... and then we share their work with the world!
Congratulations to Kelly Johnson, a mixed media artist based in California ... our lucky winner for July!
Kelly received a bachelor's degree in Studio Art and Graphic Design but it wasn't until 5 years after graduation that she found her true passion in fluid art. A California girl at heart, Kelly's love of SoCal's landscape and culture is evident in all of her work, whether she's creating flow art paintings, coasters, trinket dishes or skateboard decks.
In Kelly's words .... "For me, art is a way to escape and a means of letting my pent up creativity flow. Art gives me peace, happiness ( and sometimes frustration ) but I have found that it’s not just therapeutic for me - my art also brings joy to others!"
In fact, Kelly has an Instagram account ( @kellyybellyy62 ) dedicated to how-to videos that share the process behind her pieces. Kelly also teaches acrylic flow art workshops in her area.
Congratulations on your win, Kelly!
