Kelly Schurger was raised in the rolling hills of Tennessee and spent much of her time growing up exploring her love for art. After deciding that her future was with art, Kelly received formal training in both Tennessee and Illinois. Upon completion, she moved to Denver with her husband Stephen, where she is currently a professional studio artist.
Kelly has learned to appreciate and gather inspiration from her surroundings. She thinks that so often people miss some of the more simplistic beauty that surrounds us...be it a single cloud, a grove of trees, or the setting of the sun. Through her work, Kelly wants to remind people that beauty is always around us, no matter where we may be.
