Patt Kelley



With strong attention to dramatic lighting, Patt Kelley’s illustrative watercolors echo a curiosity of being, an interest in what puts the air into our lungs and makes our great world spin. With a focus on nature, Kelley’s paintings evoke a tongue in cheek sentimentality that could cause a laugh or make your heart swell.

Kelley earned a Bachelor of Arts from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. He creates a weekly comic strip for DigBoston called What’s for Breakfast. Kelley lives in Boston, Massachusetts with his wife, a dog, and several household plants. During the day the Kelleys operate a dog walking business. Kelley works on his art literally every other available second.
