Kelly McCarthy

I work in a variety of mediums, mainly 2D but I also create paper mache figures and paper pop up cards. I really enjoy storytelling so my work is generally narrative in nature, populated by a playfully wry cast of quirky, poignant and insightful characters.

My painting style is simplistically bold, emotive and colourful, but with a sensitivity and depth that requires a little more thought from the viewer although I always strive to make my work pertinent and accessible to all.
