Kelly Phipps


After pursuing art in various forms, I settled long ago on metal because I like the undisciplined nature of the art and being able to let my imagination flow. My artistic ideas have been firmly implanted throughout my life by being fortunate enough to live in rugged environments that have motivated my artistic journey and influenced my style.

I take real pleasure in using a cold static material such as steel to fashion a warm intricate design that compels the viewer to appreciate that the magic is not in the material of the piece but the hand that created it.

Being an outdoor sports enthusiast and gardener, my appreciation of nature is abundant.  I belive strongly in the practice of keeping our earth healthy and uncluttered so I use primarily recycled materials in my work.  My favorite part of the process is going through scrap yards, sifting through piles of metal and finding that special treasure that I know will transform into a work of art.
