Artist Bio

Kellie Jo Close has always been an artist, sometimes learning from a teacher, but mostly teaching herself. She won a Scholastic Gold Key for art before high school graduation. Soon after, Kellie joined the Army and was appointed to paint a battalion mural with three other soldiers. Singled out later, she painted the white and blue crests of the 501st Forward Support Battalion to be used during parades and displayed at battalion headquarters. As a stay-at-home mother, Kellie brought creativity into her children’s lives while creating artwork for herself, too. Now she works mostly on the JoJo Dolls that she loves, but sometimes she throws something different into the mix. She currently takes fine art classes at Ivy Tech Community College and plans to graduate with an art therapy master’s degree from Herron School of Art at IUPUI.
