ARTIST'S STATEMENT

Talbot’s work revolves around the landscape of American artifacts, craftsmanship and history. Signs and typography, architecture, industry, cemeteries and other emblems of society are the inspiration for her oil paintings. The rust and decay in the work aren’t negatives. They are both an elegy and a hope.
 

BIO

Kellie Talbot has long roots in Seattle. In 1906 her family left the Abruzzo mountains of Italy and settled in Rainier Valley. Though she was born in Hawaii and lived on both coasts growing up, Seattle has been home since 1990.

Kellie Talbot and her husband split their time between the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle and a yearly residency in New Orleans. She shares her studio space with a cat and a duck.

Currently she is represented by SAM Gallery in Seattle, Washington.
