I joined the adult choir and then after teaching myself to play piano became the choir director and organist. Later I would go to college in West Virginia and study vocal performance and piano. I was a section leader in our concert choir and the secretary and tour director, scheduling tours throughout the entire east coast. I also became the lead singer for a country/rock local band in Elkins, WV and I was hooked. The mic has not left my lips since.
Since college I have had many opportunities to perform with a variety of bands from Washington, DC and now back to my mountain roots in the Shenandoah Valley. I have sung pop, rock, country, big band, funk, blues, jazz, folk and have recently added bluegrass to my repertoire.In addition to my performing I also teach voice and piano to students of all ages. I have several studios in the area and I also offer in-home lessons. Please see my Lessons page for more details.

About Kelly: As a daily painter Kelly attempts to paint every day. She joined the daily painting movement several years ago and says that it has helped her to maintain artistic discipline, foster creativity, improve her skills and bring her great joy daily.Very much taken with subjects of everyday life from landscapes to fruit and vegetables to animals, she works in watercolor, oil, and acrylic. Working in multiple mediums keeps Kelly from being bored and gives her flexibility in subject matter. Often painting from photos in the studio, she still loves to paint in en Plein-air whenever possible.Kelly is a native of Georgia where she received a BS in Secondary Education from Georgia Southern College. She has been a full-time artist since 2007. Prior to that she worked sixteen years in the non-profit world with Chambers of Commerce in Kentucky and Virginia.
She lives and paints with Jed (a black lab-basset), Lincoln (half wirehaired dachshund and half Robin Williams on speed), and Mamie (Cairn terrier) – all rescues dogs.
