The author

Kellee Wynne Conrad is a fourth-generation artist who grew up with art as part of her daily life. She worked for many years in the design industry creating trade products, running workshops, and having her work published. One day, however, she had the overwhelming desire to return to her roots in fine art and painting and went full speed ahead with her art career. Kellee has been represented by national retailers, was selected for an international exhibit in New York City, won Signature membership with the International Society of Acrylic Painters, and has curated and juried exhibits for galleries and organizations in Maryland.

Her experience in bringing in new artists to galleries and running programs led her to build a business teaching global workshops and online art programs that use color as a foundation for learning mixed-media art techniques. Kellee’s Virtual Art Summit features top guest artists, and she coaches emerging artists to build a career with their art. Kellee studied art and art history at Monterey Peninsula College and the University of Maryland. She lives near Baltimore, Maryland.
