Single Grain of Sand 
Single Grain of Sand Gallery at Front Street will be permanently closed as of December 31, 2022. It has been an amazing journey and experience and I have grown as an artist. To all the wonderful artists at Front Street, I would like to say a huge Thank You, for your guidance, encouragement, friendship, and for all the shenanigans over the past 3 years. It has been an honor to be part of such an amazing community. Richard and Samantha thank you for all you do and for giving me an opportunity to be a part of this community.
But don't be discouraged 2023 is going to be great. Single Grain of Sand will be 100% online starting in February 2023. There will be travel, adventures and shenanigans for sure, and a huge new line of artwork. So stay tuned to my Instagram, @singlegrainofsand for updates. Who knows where I'll end up. 
So stay creative, make art, and be happy.
Peace ✌... Kelly"

The Perfect Shot series was done to bring attention to the types of bullet damage that can be done with the use of different weapons. The spread of the bullet as they strike the canvas board is distinct for each weapon as is evident from the marks they make. Rather than taking a stand for or against the use of firearms in the USA, my paintings bring attention to the fact of what types of damage can happen to the recipient at the other end of the bullet. The paintings are meant to educate, rather than glorify/demonize the use of firearms. They are advocating for tighter gun control so the weapons do not fall in the hands of people who are not responsible gun owners.
