Kellys


Ping Kelly
is a graduate of Yunnan College of Art in Kunming, where she also qualified as a teacher.

Although her personal preference is for abstract painting in oils, she has recently added acrylics to her repertoire.

Since taking up residence in The UK, Ping has further developed her skills as a portrait painter and collaborated with other local artists to create a banner depicting St Winefride, which now hangs in St Winefride's School in Wibsey.

More recently, from temporary studio space overlooking the Westfield Development site in Bradford’s Broadway, Ping painted the dramatic city centre landscape. Painting the site as it developed, at different times of the day and throughout the four seasons, she created a contemporaneous series of dramatic pictures marking the creation of a vibrant and new part of Bradford’s history.

Ping has exhibited work at several locations in South and West Yorkshire and reently had work on display at Cartwright Hall in Bradford.

Further examples of Ping's work can be viewed in her on-line gallery



Steve Kelly
studied sculpture at St Martins School of Art, graduating in 1974 and completing an Art Teachers Certificate at Goldsmiths College in 1976. He taught at Art Schools throughout East Anglia until he retired from teaching in 2011. Steve was Course Leader for Foundation Art & Design at Cambridge Regional College until July 2011, when he retired from teaching in order to concentrate on his own sculpture.

Steve lived on the North Norfolk coast for 20 years and his sculpture is inspired by the sea and its power to transform and disguise anything in its wake. By using brand new materials, wood, steel and concrete and disguising their origins he invites the viewer to invent a history or function. In each sculpture there are tangible elements of a previous existence

Steve has exhibited in group and solo shows throughout East Anglia and in London since 1976. He was a member of the Norwich Twenty Group and Norfolk Contemporary Arts. His work can be found in private collections in the UK and Europe.

Steve returned to his native Yorkshire in 2013 where he has his new home and studio. Outhouse Gallery, originally created as a showing space for Steve's work in Norfolk, now only exists on his website as a host gallery
