Kelly Klick is a rural artist based in Pinawa Manitoba. Klick’s inspiration springs from her 20 years as a Midwife and childbirth educator. She has a BA of Anthropology from University of Manitoba and a Baccalaureate of Science in Midwifery from Ryerson. She is currently a mentee in the Manitoba Arts Network’s Rural Artists Mentorship Program.
Klick grew up in Northern BC. Her experience as a child of a homesteading family and as a student of women’s health have combined with her work as a midwife to lay a solid foundation for her art. Klick uses familiar women’s handicraft mediums of lace and rug hooking along with ceramic sculpture and domestic found objects to create assemblage sculpture. She pairs this in exhibition with traditional oil paintings. She is a strong advocate for rural art and artists and has recently taken on the role of Pinawa Art 211 Vice President and Gallery Assistant
