Self Portrait at 35 Squarespace.jpg

Kelli Kaye Fountain illustrates her life through her art. Accepting the ephemeral nature of existence, life and death are, therefore, ongoing themes in her work. 

Portraits are timeless and alluring. They capture the mystery and vulnerability within. Beyond the face, resides a lifetime of memories, hopes, dreams, heartache and love. Through her work, Kelli seeks to embody the spirit of the individual and the mood they convey, at that precious moment, in their fragile and beautiful life. She considers herself  privileged to bear witness to the validity and honesty of humanity. Kelli lives in southern California with her husband and son, Buddy - the perfect muse who is constantly growing and changing.
