About the artist

Kelly Frappier Larson, an oil painter based in Denver, Colorado, draws inspiration from the awe-inspiring landscapes of the American West. Specializing in vibrant, contemporary landscape works, her art captures the essence of untouched wilderness, reflecting the epic mountains, meadows, alpine lakes, and valley views surrounding her home and travels.

Originally from Rhode Island, Kelly's artistic journey led her to the Rockies in 2016, where she has crafted breathtaking artwork for over a decade. Using oil paint, mixed mediums like graphite, wax, and mica powder, her paintings evoke the vibrant hues of Southwest deserts, serene alpine lakes, and lush East Coast forests.
