Featured Artist ~ Kelsey McCracken

Her Shop ~ A New Perspective

"Creativity and art have been part of my life as long as I can remember. I love painting, photography, reading, writing, color, drawing, and music.
My work reflects who I am and what I love. In a sense, a part of me is in each piece I create. I'm excited to share my perspective with you.

My work has been featured on Simply Hue and Lovely Clusters

'I'd like to add some beauty to life. I don't exactly want to make people know more...though I know that is the noblest ambition, but I'd love to make them have a pleasanter time because of me. To have some little joy or happy thoughts that would never have existed if I hadn't been born.' L. M. Montgomery


  1. your work is fantastic. the bird makes me want to hold it in my hand! it is plump and yes, joyful. thank you. your work is wonderfully creative and spicy and I simply love it. If I could create art as you I would feel gifted indeed. thank you.

  2. These illustrations are lovely. I really like that they're done on book pages and that the words that have been highlighted add so much to the paintings.

  3. The art I see here.. is simply great!
    The colors are warm, the subjects, interesting
    and draws on "in"..
    Hugs, Darlene

  4. Kelsey - your work here is so warm and inviting. I am particularly drawn to the portrait of the young girl reading. It is absolutely stunning. I also visited your etsy store, and look forward to seeing more of your work.

  6. What beautiful work. I love the old world feel of the vintage text.

  7. I like so much the atmosphere in your illustrations. Smells like old book pages.. A different view.. I like a lot.

  8. Beautiful illustrations! I really like the girl reading. The yellow dress and the red/brown of her hair really work well against the book background.

  9. I love how you use book pages as back grounds, it adds so much to your work.


Thanks so much for your comments. Your thoughts, opinions, and ideas are important to me!
