Art Exhibitions Glass


I’m Elaine Kelly. I live in Hertfordshire on a wide beam canal boat. It is here that I have my studio & draw upon the picturesque beauty of my surroundings to help inspire my work. I have been creating art for 25 years now & in this time have undertaken commissions for private buyers & public/commercial sector organisations. I love to work with pastels, acrylic, silk painting, printmaking, photography & sculpture. My work has also been extremely influenced by my extensive travels around the world & the extremes in cultures that I have experienced. My greatest loves for inspiration include Tibet, Cambodia, Vietnam, & Thailand although I have also worked in India, Morocco, Jamaica & parts of Europe.

I also teach an art group which has been running for a year and a half. I work with people who have enduring mental health problems; this group has therapeutic benefits in a mental health setting. To give confidence and self esteem we exhibit their work and this encourages members to socialise and be creative.

I am currently being taught kiln formed glass at Hatfield University in the evenings. Please have a look at my glass creations, Photography, and Art in my gallery. All work featured on this site is for sale.

I am now exhibiting my work at different locations around the country. It is going to be an exciting year that has had a lot of hard work involved. Please take a look, especially as I will be showcasing my new bespoke work under the name of Grand Union designs.
