Kelly’s passion for art runs deep where she is constantly dreaming of the next painting. She has officially been a full-time artist since 2015 and has sold hundreds of paintings across the United States as well as in Denmark and France. She has participated in art shows, such as the Fort Worth Main Street Art Festival where she successfully sold out, as well as Texas based galleries. She is an abstract artist that works a lot with large resin paintings, but she also loves mixed media and does not set limits on what types of paintings she does. Because she works in various mediums, she has stayed busy with commissioned paintings where she collaborates with customers and designers for specific sizes, colors, themes, styles and mediums. All of her paintings are one of a kind and she pours her heart out into each piece. She works from her art studio on a lake in East Texas now where she pours resin and manipulates the inks with blow torches, heat guns, her hands and various tools to achieve the looks she wants. When she is not utilizing resin, she has worked with metal, acrylic glass, acrylic paints, cold wax, and oil. She has also done beautiful pieces of 3D wall art and is constantly pushing her boundaries to try new things, while perfecting her techniques along the journey.
Kelly Gowan was born in CA in 1973, but grew up in Texas since she was 3. Her Dad, Grandmother, and sister were all amazing artists. In college Kelly dabbled with painting, then met her husband in 1995. She has been happily married for over 20 years and has two children. In 2005 Kelly was diagnosed with stage III Breast cancer and is here today. This is a huge reason of why she moved out to the country, lives on a lake, paints EVERY DAY, and has such a zest for life. Kelly and her family now live in East Texas at Holly Lake Ranch. Her house overlooks a small lake where daily they are surrounded by wildlife such as deer, bald eagles, and so much more. She is a Christian and thanks God every day for the blessing of being able to paint.

A Rare Glimpse
Gallery Wrap Birchwood Panel 25 x 25″
“Agate, Geodes and any kind of stones I find beautiful. This painting was created from looking at a stunning red agate stone. It is done in resin, created with inks, a blow torch and manipulated with my hands. “

3D Raised Wood Resin
“Restful Oak is a conversation piece for sure. The tree alone, being 3D, was a piece of work in itself with golden brown wood tone branches and life flowing throughout it. Once painted, the tree was then set into a heavenly resin background. This tree reminds me of Jesus, and coming to him when one is weary.”
Rainbow Lake Breckenridge

3D Acrylic Glass and Resin
“This painting was inspired by a hike my family went on while in Breckenridge Colorado. We hiked up to Rainbow Lake surrounded by aspens and it was glorious. It is one of those amazing views that makes you feel a little closer to heaven, and a moment in time you want to always remember.”
First Pink Light
Gallery Wrap Birchwood Panel 55 x 35″
“First Pink Light was a book I read as a child. I love pink light from sunrise or sunsets. The way the fog and mist can change colors with the time of day to a soft pink is so beautiful. The combination of soft color, with an abstract minimalist expression of the mountain range is very open and peaceful.”
