Keri Joy Colestock

I have been a contemporary artist since 2003. I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease where I was told “doing much of anything creative moving forward would be “impossible” from damage to my brain. Since then, I have sold 1500+ original pieces starting with my “Wall Dancers” I now am recycling found objects. My work now can be seen at 4 Art Inc Gallery where my work & I have found a wonderful new ‘home’ in the well known Zhou Bros. Art Center. My goal is to continue to create beautiful works of art fueled by passion, whimsy and imagination.

    Great post, inspiring. Amazing how much can be gleaned from a photo of an artist at work.
