ABOUT THE TEACHER:

 Melbourne based mixed media artist, Kelly Basford has been honing her craft from the day she could delicately grasp a brush in her hand. She draws inspiration from the beauty and wonder of the natural world, particularly the vastness and magic of the stars and constellations that paint the sky and the beauty and delicateness of the flowers and plants all around us. Kelly works with a wide range of art mediums, but has a love for acrylics and watercolour, to convey the space and stillness within her finished works.

When she is not painting or teaching classes she enjoys spending precious time with her husband and young son, going for walks or cooking at home.
