“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!”
The Blue Moon Stud, Co. Cork
"I have been involved with horses for the past 30 years and in my opinion Kelly Hood's artwork is some of the best I have ever seen - not only in Ireland - but in the world. I believe her works are destined to be collector items!"
Listowel, Co. Kerry
“She has an exceptional talent for creating likeness but she adds to that realism an indefinable magic. I found Kelly a very warm and perceptive artist who puts her subjects at ease. She has produced these paintings which have been warmly praised by all who have seen them.”
The Avenue des Champs-Élysées, Paris
“Our wish was for a painting to be a celebration of my time in Dingle- Ireland, something timeless that I could enjoy forever, and appreciate every day. Our wish came true – Kelly proved to be the perfect artist in every detail.”
Chef and Restauranteur, The Wild Boar Pub, Stepaside Village, Co. Dublin
"We chose Kelly to create a truly unique piece of artwork for our innovative new premises. We not only wanted work that was truly unique but it needed to be contemporary and leading edge to support the culture and ethos of our business. We looked around at several galleries to find an artist that could fulfill this criteria. We spotted Kelly when she was featured in the Irish Tatler and were immediately very impressed with her work. Her work is refreshingly vibrant and contemporary and had all the all hallmarks of what we were looking for.
The commission now hangs strikingly in our new Wild Boar Pub reception area, and it has certainly created a great impression on our visitors. We would recommend Kelly for her professional work and attitude."
