Picturing Life: An Interview with Fort Wayne Painter Tom Kelly

Tom Kelly

Award-winning Fort Wayne artist Tom Kelly has been cultivating his unique painting style over the course of a lifetime.

Kelly is a familiar name in town, not only for his art, but also as the CEO of Kelly Box and Packaging

Still, he often prefers to fly under the radar. But he's about to step into the limelight with a show at Artworks: The Galleria of Fine Art that begins this weekend.

WBOI's Julia Meek met with Kelly earlier this week to learn more about the perspectives at play in the artist's work and lifestyle.
