Shawn Kelly is a life-long Memphian and longtime American literature teacher. Born into a family of creative carpenters and entrepreneurs, Shawn found early inspiration in endeavors such as woodworking, cooking, poetry, and landscaping.
In 2005, Shawn began exploring painting in his small backyard workshop in High Point Terrace. Shawn is a self-taught painter. His work has navigated towards abstract expressionism in acrylics and oil on canvas and wood planks. For Shawn, a lifetime of learning about forms of expression in his beloved hometown continues. We hope you enjoy his work.
