Philadelphia artist Lisa Kelley wrote, "Through the years, my artwork has evolved in both content and medium. The common thread throughout the work has been, and still is, typography, words, stories and color. Sometimes the stories are apparent in the work, and other times the stories are what fuel the art. My background in graphic design has influenced my work through explorations of color, pattern and repetition. Collage, paint, fibers, textiles, metal, found objects and hand-carved stamps make up some of my recent work."
