Bio/Artist Statement

North Carolina artist, Jo Ridge Kelley is a contemporary ‘plein air’ impressionist painter who works in oil and lives and works in Waynesville, North Carolina.

Jo says,  “When I begin a painting, I take inspiration from a beautiful light, color, form or texture and then continue working through observation.

More often, I end up choosing exaggerated and unexpected color relationships and compositions that reflect my emotional response more so than what I’m seeing in front of me. I find it much more satisfying to be guided as much by my imagination and memory as my eyes.”
