KELLYANN BURNS is an American Abstract Artist who focuses on process and color to portray a visual dialogue of the environments she observes.  Burns’ work encourages an intimate perceptual experience with the viewer, evoking a personal recollection of structures, depicting spatial organization of architecture and forms that expose the beauty of erosion - how attrition and regeneration in the natural and built world evokes both the reductive and the expressive.

Burns’ work is held in many public and private collections and has exhibited throughout the United States and abroad. She lives and works in Los Angeles, CA
