Originally from near Helston in Cornwall, Audrey Kellow was first inspired to paint in oils at school in the mid-1960s. It was also her first introduction to strong colour and shape, which still forms the essence of her work.

Kellow returned to education during the 1990s as an adult student and completed an OND and HND in Illustration and Design at Falmouth University, Falmouth, Cornwall. She holds a Teaching Certificate and Cert Ed, and tutored adult education classes for local colleges for several years.

The coast and countryside especially in the west of Cornwall are her inspiration. Her work has a narrative background, sometimes being merely the 'feel' of a place and sometimes part of a personal childhood story. Kellow has always been a writer of prose and poetry and had previously written and illustrated two books which were printed for family members.
She works primarily in oils on paper, canvas or board.

Over a period of time, she has worked on several commissions for private clients, for brochures for a local college, and for Hyperion records.
More recently, she has focused on producing fine art for galleries and has sold paintings both at home and internationally.

Kellow resides in Helston.
