Kelly Anna started her journey as an artist very young. She got her major break when she was commissioned by London Fashion Week as an illustrator whilst she was at university. After multiple seasons of illustrating for London Fashion Week she got a job as the Head of Print at a fashion house. It was then that she saw her brand expand with huge celebrity names wearing her prints including Cara Delevingne, Beyoncé and London Grammar. Kelly has created a vast body of work. She has designed trainers with Nike, painted murals, curated exhibitions, taken over buildings, and even embellished popcorn packets. Her work stands out due to its empowering messages, with themes of female empowerment and powerful slogans. She describes her work as lots of vibrant colour palettes and bold graphics, mixed with fluid mark-making and abstract collage. The influence of Matisse and Hockney are shown through her punchy blend of dominant female figures and sunshine colours.
