Kelly Cannell

Kelly Cannell is a Coast Salish artist from the Musqueam Nation in British Columbia. Kelly was shown Coast Salish art and culture from birth; she lives it every day among her community and with her family, including her two children. As far back as Kelly can remember is when she began to explore her calling in artistry. Her talents continue to grow in part from Kelly’s passion for travel, which brings her to countries around the world. Experiencing these places with the help of locals and their unique culture have helped intensify her connections to the natural world. Kelly uses these experiences and connections as the foundation for all of her work.

In her pursuit for exploring mediums she has followed her passion for glass to the renowned Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, Washington, and The Glass Furnace in Istanbul, Turkey.

Kelly also continued to study part-time at Emily Carr University, most recently silk screen printing and acrylic painting. She takes pride redefining her style and perspective and continues to challenge herself by expanding on traditional themes as well as teaching children.

Kelly is amassing public works throughout Vancouver including Storm Sewer covers (with her mother Susan Point), and sites at Canadian Broadcast Corporation (CBC), Vancouver Community College, Musqueam Community Centre, West Broadway, Westbank Towers @ Granville & 70th and a Canada 150 Light Box Mural @ Queen Elizabeth Theatre.
