About Kelly

An artist from a young age, Kelly Meagher grew up in Central Massachusetts and began formally studying art at the Worcester Art Museum while in High school. She attended the Maine College of Art Summer Program in 2002 and moved south to attend the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2003. After college a love of traveling and surfing took Kelly to Puerto Rico, where the tropical flora and fauna enamored her and the pristine waves inspired her to move to the Caribbean. 

Her tropical lifestyle influences her paintings immensely, along with paintings with strong female figures and beautiful botanicals. Warm tropical scenes primarily define her work with detailed water textures and luscious warm sunsets. Kelly enjoys experimenting with many different materials but mostly paints using oil paint, acrylic and watercolor. Kelly enjoys a challenge and likes to paint on unique materials that define her location like machete's and locally sourced wood panels. In 2017 Kelly began experimenting with murals and today she runs Jelly Creative Co. specializing in Art and Design in Western Puerto Rico. 

Kelly enjoys supporting local fundraisers like the Surfrider Foundation
