Story
Tagline
Borsheim Arts Studio - Sculpture in Stone & Bronze; paintings and drawings of the figure
Introduction
"I am interested in the more personal moments of our lives – things we do not often share with other people, or at least, not knowingly so.  I am also fascinated by the duality of our nature, especially the idea that two opposing concepts exist in a strange kind of balance. Our thoughts are expressed through our bodies.  I use the elements of visual language to appeal to the senses of sight and touch while exploring these ideas, seeking the universal in the personal.  I want art to be a sensual experience." - Kelly Borsheim

Since her first painting sale in October 1997 (an oil painting titled Hand Off Knee), Kelly Borsheim's paintings, drawings, and bronze and stone sculpture are now in private collections throughout the United States and in Australia, Canada, Italy, France, The Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and New Zealand. 

Kelly also worked as a street painter (pastels and chalks) in Florence, Italy for about four years.  Her image-filled book "My Life as a Street Painter in Florence, Italy" is available on Amazon.com in many countries around the world.
