Meet The Artist
Joel Sidney Kelly, III has called Montgomery, AL home for practically his entire life. His educational background is in architecture and music. Having never formally studied art, Joel has been disciplined in his pursuit of self-education by studying the techniques of Anders Zorn, Joaquín Sorolla, and John Singer Sargent and closely following the trends of contemporary portrait painters, and has been privileged to have studied with Michael Shane Neal- widely considered one of the top 10 living portrait artists in the world. He has been commissioned for portrait work from Charlotte, Atlanta, Nashville, Birmingham, Houston, and many cities in between.
