Full name

Kelli Canady




Columbus, OH


I’m an artist, wife, and mother who creates intuitive abstracts in order to explore my inner self within a world of color.


Kelli Canady is a mixed media artist from Columbus Ohio. She works with acrylic paint on paper and canvas, adding marks in a variety of materials including colored pencil, inks, and oil pastels. Deeply influenced by nature, her work draws inspiration from the forms and colors seen in the natural world. Kelli Canady graduated from The Ohio State University in 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts focused on painting and drawing. She spent the next ten years creating art on nights and weekends while working at the university in a project management role. In the spring of 2016 she left her non-creative job and started down the path that would lead to a full time art career.

As of 2019, I'm not currently selling. But I'm still very active on Instagram and Facebook.
