Kelli Ruback, Maryland Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement Kelli Anne Ruback, born November 18th, 1988 is from a rural, suburban community of Carroll County MD. As a young child, Kelli spent much of her time drawing, coloring and painting, which continued to develop and grow into her elementary and primary school years. She was recognized by her teachers and peers as a gifted young artist and was frequently chosen to contribute in a variety of art-related projects for both her school and local community.
Kelli’s work includes original designs for school-wide floor mats, murals, album covers, T-shirts and logos; she is also well versed in web design, digital paintings and photo retouching. One of her most memorable accomplishments was being awarded the “Arts, Humanities and Communications Certificate of Achievement” of her graduating class.
Kelli’s long-term goal is to continue to create original paintings as well as digital artworks using her innate ability to combine color, patterns and abstract design toward a retro-urban style of artistry. Her inspiration comes from within as she doesn’t follow or emulate any particular artist – with that, all of Kelli’s creations convey a unique essence of who she - a truly gifted, young artist.
