Kelly Gilleran is a Colorado based illustrator currently focusing on vintage inspired Food Pattern and Food Pin-Ups. Kelly’s work is heavily influenced by mid-century advertising illustrations. Her work seeks to revitalize forgotten imagery with deep reverence for traditional media practice and techniques. Her work is vibrant, humorous and plays with a retro-kitsch aesthetic.
Kelly received her bachelor’s degree in Art & Design from Sacred Heart University with a double concentration in painting and illustration in 2012. Kelly has exhibited her work in Connecticut, Massachusetts, California, and recently returned from a 6-month artist residency in Melbourne, Australia.
