MTC Kelly Kreg’s energy, joyful nature and playful spirit shines through her artworks, which are as fresh, cheery and inspiring as she is herself. Her favorite subjects are usually flowers, hearts and small animals, although lately she has enjoyed creating several works of abstract graffiti art for commercial office spaces.
Vibrant, upbeat, unendingly positive and determined, Kelly perfects her skills each time she enters the MTC Fine Arts Studios. Despite limited use of her arms, Kelly is an avid maker of collage art. To obtain the shapes she desires, Kelly often tears papers into small pieces by using her teeth, always smiling as she achieves her desired results.
In recognition of her talent, determination and ability as a collage artist despite limited use of her arms, Kelly was invited to finish a collage alongside the artist who created it, Derek Gores, at the Tampa Bay Lightning’s first Celebration of the Arts. Kelly and Penny Vinick, owner of the team, glued on personal and family photos to the collage which was installed on the Club level of the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Stop by next time you visit the Tampa Bay Times Forum to see Kelly’s smiling face among the crowd!
