ABOUT ME

KELLY HINDS

ABSTRACT ARTIST

BASED ON GOLD COAST QUEENSLAND AUSTRALIA

My art practice is inspired by creating colourful outcomes with an emotive narrative. Our connectedness and ever changing environment allow me to draw on multiple conclusions throughout my practice.  Abstraction became my exploration; by using multiple layers of colour suspended on top of each other this was achieved. I love the uncontrolled chaos and freedom that comes whilst working in abstraction, exploring the tension between colour, light and narrative.

 

I started quite late in art (2007) and perused my Fine Art Degree 5 years later with Curtin University, Perth, Australia.  Purely to educate myself on how the world of art works.  Interesting road coming from the business world in accounting and manufacturing.

It has been quite a journey so far to see how my practice has changed in style and outcomes. I really couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else. I have a definitely love of colour and creating. I will continue to chase the colourful narrative and emotion through each piece I create.
