Artists that inspire me: Kelly McKernan

Kelly McKernan is a fine artist and illustrator based in Tennessee.

She's only 26 yrs young, but has an amazing body of work.

She creates mostly watercolour and gouache paintings, but has also illustrated some children's books.

I love the ethereal fragile look of her female figures and the transparancy of her layers

I also really like the little squares in the background of some of her paintings.

She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 2009, and has been working as a full-time artist since 2012.

If you want to see more of her work, you can visit 

Hope you enjoyed seeing her work. Thanks so much for visiting, I'll be back on Friday for the last Summer of Color! ♥
