Kelly Sparks

Kelly Sparks (Salchli) is a 2000 graduate of the Columbus College of Art and Design with a major in illustration. Since, she has painted theater sets for the local community theater and created her own ball-jointed dolls. In the last few years Kelly has returned to  illustration and fine arts with a focus on acrylic as a medium. 

She lives in Kentucky, USA, in a stone cottage with three children and a herd of pets: chickens, goldfish, a dog, and a good number of cats.

She was raised on horse picture books, a good deal of children’s classic literature, and a smattering of her brother’s comics. There will always be horses and cats running through her imagination.

Work shown here is from between 2018 and 2020. All paintings are acrylic on birch wood panel, finished with a satin varnish. This is Kelly's first Illuxcon presence, and she hopes to be able to meet the Illuxcon artists and patrons in peron when it's next possible.
