Paul Kellett was won PACK & SEND Art of the Week in its 11th week. Paul is an artist based in the UK. He came back to painting in his 40’s largely following a breakdown as a way to support his well being. Painting helps him draw away from the day to day stresses of his job in the charity sector. His work is abstract and largely explores communicating emotion through a fluid process of paint application.
His winning entry, SOAR, was painted as a commission for a client who had lost her husband in tragic circumstances. It was a gift for her daughter and speaks about the ability to overcome tragedy and find the strength to move forward and not just exist but live to the full. It’s about taking the tougher emotions of your life and using them for the good of soaring to new heights.
