Welcome to Kelly's Art From the Soul
Original artwork by Kelly Simpson Hagen
Hello and thank you for visiting!
Who I am..
Welcome to Kelly's Art From the Soul!
I began painting with my grandmother at an early age and have been creating art ever since. I love painting colorful, diverse worlds where people of all cultures come together under the same sun and celebrate as one, embracing similarities and appreciating differences. I see art as a form of therapy for my soul, which is where the name “Kelly’s Art From the Soul” came from. My passions are teaching, kids and art, and I love to spend my summers hosting artist workshops and painting parties. I currently live, teach, and paint in Portland, Oregon. :)
Here is my newest painting titled,
I started this painting the first week the Coronavirus stay at home orders started. I saw a video of people in Italy singing with their neighbors from their windows, and I felt I had to capture this unprecedented moment somehow. Even though we are living through a very scary time in our lives right now, people are showing so much kindness and compassion, it is breathtaking and heartwarming. We will get through this, and the Earth will heal in the meantime. Stay strong friends, this will be over soon!
The original has sold, and is now in it's forever home in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

This is another new painting in honor of all of our essential workers, who are risking their lives daily to keep us healthy. The original painting is now with a well deserving nurse in California. <3
