Paul lives in LaHave, Nova Scotia with his wife and family. He enjoys spending time with family and friends, running, kayaking, and working on their 100 year old house and property.
His quiet lifestyle belies Paul’s acute sense of the elements of fundamental beauty and sensuous allure. Paul understands the subtle difference between “sensual beauty”, and “sexual eroticism”. For an image to be sensuous simply means that it appeals to the eye and the heart. That understanding, combined with Paul’s expertise in composing the elements of his paintings within the parameters of his canvas, make Paul Kelley’s art, uniquely powerful, and appealing.
Paul's art is a labor of love. Each realistic painting is the result of hundreds of hours of work involving the careful manipulation of light and form, colour and composition, to create an image which is passionate and alluring. Whether the subject is a marine art or a young woman in high heels, the result is a balanced image which is both powerful and yet serene, mysterious yet inviting. Whether or not the piece is sensual art by subject, the result is a painting which is sensuous art in it's essential form.
