For Kelly, everything is an artful adventure.
Walking along the beach, glistening pebbles reflect sunlight and become radiant gems to her inquisitive eyes. Cooking a meal, vibrant, locally grown fruits paired with fresh-caught fish to sustain not only body but soul. Crafts hewn in her studio are often inspired by nature; those she discovers across the globe speak of her passion for culture, history and beauty. Through all, artistic expression woos her with untold possibilities.
Recipes for an Inspired Life chronicles Kelly’s discoveries in nature, food and art. She delights both in sharing her knowledge and helping others perceive the world with new eyes by providing easy, hands-on projects.
Kelly has always viewed life from a unique vantage.
In her early 20s, she browsed the famed, open-air Pike Place Market in historic Seattle every Saturday morning. There, she was surrounded by the bustle and beauty of farmers selling luscious fruits and vegetables to crowds of locals and tourists, many speaking wondrous and unknown languages. Meanwhile, international crafters hawking enticing wares — textiles, pottery and jewelry — awoke in Kelly an appreciation of other cultures.
She matured to study costume design and business, own her own clothing company, sell hand-painted pottery and write about arts and crafts. Today, she owns KSL Designs, through which she creates elegant websites for small businesses and individuals.
But Kelly’s quest to unfold the art that exists in everything she touches, tastes and experiences is never-ending and must find expression somewhere.
Recipes for an Inspired Life is that place. A lifestyle blog focusing on simple and lovely things, from cooking to creating, won’t you join Kelly in crafting an inspired life?
