Kelly Lorraine Caldwell is a visual and lingual artist who inhabits and explores "the spaces between." Art vs craft, contemporary vs traditional, masculine vs feminine - she is continually plagued and intrigued by these dualities. Influenced by a lifelong interest in sewing and five years in commercial embroidery, her current body of work is an exploration of narrative quilting and mixed media decoration of textile pieces.

Kelly holds a BFA from the University of Connecticut and is currently a member of the Connecticut chapter of Studio Art Quilt Associates [SAQA], the Arts and Crafts Association of Meriden [ACAM], and the Greater Hartford Quilt Guild.
