Artist Bio

About me

Hello, my name is Kelsey Todd, and I am a 26-year-old artist from Ayrshire, Scotland. I pursued my education in fine art and design at Ayrshire College for a duration of 5 years, ultimately graduating in 2018. During my final year at college, I decided to focus on the captivating realm of underwater art, and it has remained my chosen theme ever since. This particular theme resonates with me deeply as swimming is another one of my passions in life, allowing me to seamlessly merge my two interests.

To capture reference images for my artwork, I employ a unique technique. I film myself underwater and subsequently extract frames from the video through screenshots. This method enables me to precisely capture the desired water ripples and achieve the desired aesthetic in my artwork.

After graduating from college, I have actively participated in numerous exhibitions across Ayrshire. Notably, I achieved the remarkable feat of winning the prestigious 'Young Artist of the Year' award two years in a row at the esteemed 'North Ayrshire Open Art Exhibition' in both 2018 and 2019.

In addition to participating in exhibitions, I also conduct art demonstrations upon request, primarily in local art clubs around Ayrshire. I love doing these demos as it gives me the opportunity to meet and have a chat with fellow artists.

In 2023 My painting 'Aero Bubbles' got chosen to be the cover for a book from Amsterdam. The book is titled "Tussen Huids," which translates to "in-between skins."
