Kelly Klick Art who I am and how to contact me...

Art takes action to create, patience to grow, vulnerability to deliver and a lot of trust to let it live its own life separate from the artist. 

I am a rural artist living in Pinawa Manitoba, where the prairie meets the Canadian Shield and where the historic Winnipeg River flows. Originally, I grew up in northern British Columbia, daughter of homesteaders.  My inspiration springs from 20 years as a midwife and childbirth educator in Ontario and Manitoba. In my artwork I use traditional handicraft mediums of lace and wool along with found objects and clay.
