About the Artist
Kelly Hood...painter of the natural world, is a full-time artist who works in oils and mixed media.
She has developed her own unique style of photo-realism and pays extreme attention to detail.
“Kelly was pleased with the outcome. I, however, was ecstatic. She had captured my calf’s personality, my land, and above all that je ne sais quoi that all brilliant artists aspire to achieve. She has it!” Tom Farrell, The Horse & Jockey, Co. Tipperary
What the critics say

An invitation received only this week from Art selectors in the US has the artist's head in a spin. World wide interest in the artist's work came to a high earlier this year when the she was informed that she was selected in a global search by Seattle’s Irish Heritage Club”. The Dingle News
