Christine Kelly is a San Francisco Bay Area painter. She grew up in an artistic environment, living in San Francisco with her grandfather, who was a painter and illustrator. After studying interior design at the Western Design Institute (now John F. Kennedy University), she established her own business, Kelly-Kirby Designs, in San Francisco. Her design experience, including her love of pattern, fabric, and texture, can be seen in her work, where collage has become an increasingly important element.

Christine studied watercolor, painting, and printmaking at the College of Marin, and has taken workshops with Michael Cutlip, Nicholas Wilton, Michael Azgour and Carol Levy. She lives in Sausalito, CA, where she also has a studio at ICB Artists Association.
