Kelly Greene

Kelly Greene is the mother of two and a multi-media artist whose work includes painting, sculpture, installation, and photo montage. She is of Mohawk-Oneida-Sicilian ancestry, a member of the Six Nations of the Grand River. 

Her art focuses primarily on environmental, Haudenosaunee, political, and auto-biographical topics, using ironic humour when possible. The ever-alarming condition of our planet has inspired Greene to create works that represent our Mother Earth as human, appealing to our species' egocentricity, hoping empathy will be instilled and respect given so future generations will continue to be revived and thrive.
