Currently living in her native California, Kelly Vivanco has been painting and drawing since childhood and she holds a BFA with honors from LCAD. Kelly enjoys setting whimsy to work in many media but works mainly in acrylic paints and glazes. She pulls inspiration from the natural and imagined world, vintage photographs, children’s literature and dreams.
Solo and in group exhibitions since 2005 include showings at the California Center for the Arts Museum, The Portsmouth Museum of Art, Thinkspace, Spoke Art, Gallery 1988, Rotofugi, Nahcotta, Distinction, Inner State, Arch Enemy, Art Basel, Scope art fair, the Brand Library and Arts Center and the Orange County Center for Contemporary Arts. Her work is held in collections across the U.S. and abroad.
"Return to the Peppermint Forest is a revisiting of some themes I have been exploring for the past decade or so. The Peppermint Forest is a place of mystery and internal thoughts, unspoken dialogues and curious animals. It is an environment that engages and encourages us. It is a colorful place of wishing, which compels a greater connection to something that will protect and heal us. Sometimes painting is like stirring magic. Through painting I hope to engage the innate sense of wonder I believe is in everyone."
