Welcome to Kelly Reark's Coastal Florida Wildlife Art
"Boca Grande Boys" (C) Kelly Reark
Kelly Reark is an accomplished artist. While painting is first and foremost, Kelly is also a skilled potter and sculptor. Her works have been purchased by international buyers and are displayed in both corporate offices and luxury homes. Kelly specializes in native Florida wildlife, and focuses on game fish.
Kelly's love of the ocean is easy to see in her artwork. Her background is in applied marine biology and she has also studied marine ecology. Back in college, one of her professors even asked to keep her lab notebook for the detailed illustrations! Game fishing and diving are Kelly's passions, and she uses that inspiration to create unique paintings of her experiences.
Over a dozen of Kelly's works are on display at the Temptation's Caribbean Room and the Park Avenue Liquor Store on Boca Grande. All are for sale.
Many of Kelly's paintings are on her website, http://www.kellyreark.com/. You may contact her for more information on purchasing an existing piece, or with an inquiry for an original piece.
