Girls , cars and guitars is series of paintings and mixed media collage that celebrates the converted possessions of the ‘aussie male’. These works on canvas are tightly cropped vignettes that investigate memory and desire.

The vigorous paint application on canvas is an extension Kellie’s drawing performance history.
