About Kelsey VandenHoek

Canada

I am a 25 year old, self taught artist who started painting in June of 2017. Despite constant battles with my health, and raising two very young daughters, I still find time for my newfound passion. 

Biography

Kelsey VandenHoek is an Orangeville Ontario local, having lived here since she was 8 years old. She specializes in abstract acrylic Landscapes, or as she likes to call them, Naturalistic Reveries. She has always loved nature but is relatively new to painting. She originally trained as, and was, a professional chef for years, before an ongoing battle with an autoimmune disease forced her to give up that dream and she turned to painting as an outlet for her creativity. Within a 3 year span, in the midst of her new diagnosis and leaving behind her career, she got married, bought a house and had two kids. She only began painting in June of 2017 and quickly discovered her ability to discern colors and textures in the views she sees out the window.
