Our Story


Who We Are

Creating artwork for people has been a passion for Kelly Daniels ever since she was a child. When she was 11 she drew a layout of the design of her future home gallery. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Central Missouri State University in 1983. She has owned her own gallery for 20 years and for 25 years has created artwork for clients all over the United States.

Her artwork and gardens have been featured in national magazines such as Midwest Living magazine, Kansas City Homes and Gardens magazine, Kansas City Home Design magazine, and the Independent magazine among others. Her work has been featured in the Kansas City Symphony Designer Show house for the last 10 years. She has been featured with her work on the Women Today show on channel 41, Fox 4 news, and channel 5 news garden shows.

She specializes in creating scenic portrait art of children, families and weddings in her gardens, reminiscent of the Impressionist style. She embeds photographs into canvas and applies oils and dyes to enhance color and perfect the images, creating very personal pieces of art.
