About Kelly

IMG_8440.JPG

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 briefly and moved south to attend the Savannah College of Art and Design. She holds a Bachelor of Arts with a degree in Advertising Design. 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 with much of her free time exploring the island and surfing. Paintings with strong female figures and colorful nature 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. She paints on unique materials that define her location like machete's, ukuleles and locally sourced wood panels. In 2017 Kelly widened her creative scope to include graphic design and branding to serve her flourishing community of Rincón. She now enjoys creating murals throughout Western Puerto Rico in addition to her graphic design and painting. 


Kelly's passion for the ocean drives her to support local fundraisers like the Surfrider Foundation
