Heya! My name's Kell Kitsch, I create whimsical, weird-ish art because I can ha!
I live in the lively city of Melbourne in Australia.
I've decided to return to school to finish my degree in Visual Communication & Design after a few years' break of figuring out what to do with my life...I've always had a bit of a knack for drawing oddball characters, so maybe that's just what I'm meant to pursue in this peculiar little world!
I find drawing very therapeutic and an essential part of my life as I use it to unleash ideas that I would otherwise find difficult to describe through other mediums. I suppose draw these particular characters & landscapes because I identify with them, wanderers who seek solidity, escaping the chaos in the world to enjoy the beauty of nature and quiet surrounds.
I also love animals, eating plants, yoga, meditation, play state volleyball & hula hooping! I also teach art classes to young kiddiewinks - which you can find more info on it here.
I hope my art inspires, brings a sense of positivity or creativity in some way or another.
Anyway enough about me!
