Ryann Kelly is a Washington, D.C based visual artist and painter, known for her daring color palette and emotionally charged portraits. Her mediums range from acrylics, water and ink, watercolor, pastels and graphite. As a natural extrovert she decided to partake in live art because she wanted to connect to her audience in a more personal way. Ryann graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art from Norfolk State University. She then went on to receive her MS in Web Development from Boston University. She credits her education for basic technical experience but feels that it was the influence of her friends and family that gave her the courage to discover and explore her own style in art. Though her skills are always growing and developing it is a goal of hers to translate metaphysical impossibilities into realities.
