About Kelley Batson Howard (KBatsonART)
I was born in Anniston, AL where I lived the first 28 years of my life having and raising my family of daughters. I was then transplanted into the Central Florida communities of Apopka, Mt Dora and Eustis where I have lived the last 30 years assisting in and running a family business all the while having a deep longing to satisfy my hearts desire of creating art. My recent years have been spent honing my craft and getting to know myself better as an artist. In 2018, I joined a working artist studio in Eustis, FL named Wild Ibis Art Studios & Gallery where my work can be seen daily 11-4, M -Sat.
I am a life-taught, intuitive artist who loves using texture, pattern, and brilliant color in a combination that makes the viewer want to reach out and touch. I love seeing how the paints and different mediums work together on the canvas to create those textures and patterns. I work spontaneously and let my spirit guide what happens on the canvas. My desire is for my paintings to give the viewer a glimpse of God's magnificence and glory while uplifting their spirit.
