About Me

My 
Story

My name is Kelsey Nieto and I am a 28 year old freelance artist born and raised in Maryland. I graduated from Montgomery College in 2014 with a Studio Art Associates and currently furthering my education at Morgan State University. I specialize in oil painting and pencil drawing with a main focus in figure art and still life. My art is highly influenced by famous artists like Frida Kahlo and Georgia O'Keeffe as well as current events. I enjoy reading about artists and using their techniques to create new work. My inspiration is to celebrate the world we live in while prioritizing the power of telling a story. 

 

I have exhibited my work in Maryland and DC. I accept commissions and provide Paint & Sip services in the DMV area.
