This week's artist from artGuide Magazine's artist directory is Charlottesville artist - Kelly Oakes.

Twice a year artGuide Magazine releases an artist directory that highlights artists and artworks from across the country. Each artist has their own personal page that is searchable based on genre, location, and name. The page also provides links to the artist's individual website as well as an artist biography and an example of their work. Collectors, gallery owners, and patrons anxiously await artGuide's exclusive Artist Directory every 6 months.

Kelly is inspired by the human figure, drawn to the beauty of the form and emotion of the individual person who is the model. She enjoys working from life, when she can feel and experience the person in front of her. Kelly finds different outlets to express her love of art, whether by teaching students of all ages to paint, or by painting commissioned portraits or at live events or weddings.
