Meet Kelly Hoernig

Kelly Hoernig | Teacher

I was born to be an artist, really. At the tender age of 4 I was pointing at clouds and fields of corn telling my mom how beautiful they were. I am still taken aback by either of them, their shapes, movements and the beauty light creates within them.

My art career is long and has taken many different roads but it has always been about creating, teaching and sharing the joy art has brought to my life. I have been creating for 23 years now and still can’t believe this is what I get to do for a living.

My husband John has been a constant supporter and love of mine since I was 15 (where does the time go?). Our family is completed with Captain Jack and Princess Sophie (shih tzu/bichon mix puppies, well they are really 9 now but still puppies to us) and over 80 fresh water fish tanks. Yes, you read that right, 80 fish tanks – nuts right? We live on 10 wooded acres surrounded by nature, a pond, flowers and so many beautiful gifts hidden to discover. It’s a little slice of heaven honestly and there are days I still can’t believe I live here.

I love painting, photography and realism. I dabble with writing and watercolor. I challenge growth, learning and myself daily. But most of all, I live to inspire others, enjoy an artful life, and try to create something each and every day.
