Kansas City, Missouri
Kelly Aaron became interested in mosaics about fifteen years ago after meeting another artist who created art from broken dishes. It was a medium with few rules, and endless possibilities. The freeform style, coupled with Kelly's love of antiques, resulted in the creation of truly one-of-a-kind pieces, incorporating broken dishes, buttons, beads, vintage jewelry, old tins, figurines, and anything else she could get her hands on.
Kelly still does mosaic and mixed media pieces, but most of what she creates now is freeform earthenware sculpture. She gets plenty of artistic inspiration from her studio space in the historic West Bottoms neighborhood of Kansas City. Some of her favorite projects include collaborating with clients to create timeless, custom works of art. After lots of detours, Kelly finally lives in her dream cottage in Midtown Kansas City, just a mile or so from where she was born.
