My name is Kelly Mueller. I grew up mostly in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. I graduated from Kutztown University with a BS in Elementary Education I am fortunate enough to live in Belize for part of the year.
I have been teaching Elementary and Middle School students for more than 35 years, the last 21 right here in Schuylkill Haven. I have three children, Julie, Rachel, and Max. I reside in Schuylkill Haven with my very patient and understanding husband Glenn and my two dogs Jack and Dixie
My medium is fluid acrylic painting mostly. My style comes from the Caribbean where I was lucky enough to be trained and influenced by many artists of San Pedro and Caye Caulker Belize. Being a teacher, I am fortunate enough to look at children’s faces all day long. I have a fascination with bright colors and children’s faces. I find all faces to be beautiful especially those of children. I add both to most of my art work. Most of my knowledge comes from being self-taught. I am a naïve artist. I work mostly in my home studio. I can make my art from photographs given to me of your children.
I am interested in pottery and sculpture as well. I work with clay at the Walk In Art Center. I am lucky, excited, and proud to be an artist here in Schuylkill Haven. I am an active member in the Schuylkill County Art Alliance.
