New Website!!

It's been a very long time since I last visited this space. I've missed you--and today, I'm so excited to share with you my recently overhauled website (woohoo!). Note: After this post, I will also no longer be using my wordpress blog address (you can follow along on my blog at KellyAngelovic.com if you are so inclined).

For those of you who don't know me very well, let me introduce myself. My most significant roles include mom (two little ages 6 and 3), artist, and wife (not necessarily in that order). Incomprehensive as it is, these titles do provide an accurate overview. 

I'm approaching (next month) a birthday that marks both the end and the beginning of a decade. Birthdays always have me feeling a bit introspective, and this is a big one. My life isn't just cupcakes and rainbows--we all have our demons and our lessons to learn here. And let's be honest, being here can be pretty rough, especially for those of us with a sensitive constitution.

When I step back and survey the landscape of my reality though, I am filled, top to bottom, with gratitude. 

Outside in the real world--that is a whole different story. We seem to be, as a country, somewhere... new, somewhere that I haven't yet experienced (the anger, the fear, the intensity) and I'm uneasy about what's lies ahead.

Our light outweighs our darkness though--I truly believe that. Looking into the joy-filled eyes of my 3 year old or listening to the infectious laughter of my 1st grader, I have a front row seat to all that is beautiful and good in humanity.

Love your people, even (especially) when you disagree, when the differences seem too high and wide to overcome. We need each other right now.

 

 
I Have Amazing News!!

I am doing-a-happy-dance, my feet aren't really touching the ground kind of happy today...

It's official!! I'm now represented by the wonderful Jennifer Nelson and her incredible agency, Jennifer Nelson Artists. You can see my gallery and read all about right here.

Not only is Jennifer an ace at what she does, but she is also incredibly warm, generous, and kind (as are the rest of her amazingly talented artists). OMG. Can you believe how talented they all are????

Several years ago, when I first fell head over heels with the art of image making, I decided to follow the whispers of my heart and soul. This is by no means an easy path, but it is certainly the most rewarding.

I am an illustrator because it makes my soul sparkle.

It lights me up. And I really believe the world would be a better place if there were more people following their light.

Listen to those quiet whispers deep down, urging you on your soul's path. The world is truly an amazing place and I can't wait to see what happens next.
