Kelly Parsell

Kelly Parsell constructs whimsical atmospheres rich in nostalgia for a past shared by her generation and gender, but also tinged with unexpected tension concerning sexuality, femininity, and memory. She received her MFA in Interdisciplinary Book & Paper Arts from Columbia College Chicago and her BA in Psychology and Studio Art from Albion College, and she currently runs Nerd Press, a paper goods and novelty gifts business. Her artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally and can be found in numerous libraries and collections, including those of Yale, Indiana, and Duke universities.
