Meet Susan Kelley
Decorative Painting Designer, Author and Teacher...

I have been painting and crafting for more than twenty years now. I suppose it is more than just a hobby at this point, but to this day I still love being creative!

In 2001, 'Puddles of Paint' was born.  Since I was on a tight budget but wanted an online presence, I spent huge amounts of time learning to design, create and maintain this website. Graphic design is second only to my love for decorative painting!

My family includes 1 very nice husband, 3 awesome sons, 3 beautiful daughter-in-laws, 4 way-to-cute grand children and too many cats to count.  Sadly, I lost my parents in 2018, just a month apart from one another.  I knew they were soul mates being married 64+ years... always together... and then when dad passed away, mom was admitted into the hospital just 2 days after his funeral.  She held on for a bit, and then she too passed away.  I am certain that they are together again embarking on their new journey in Heaven.

I have authored and co-authored several decorative painting books, as well as hundreds of pattern packets and Ornament Collection CDs. My style is usually on the whimsical side and I use acrylics. I love painting all things winter, including my original candy-cane nosed snowmen. 
Now hundreds of pattern packets fill the pages of my Shop and I've partnered up with Cabin Crafters to cut and sell my wood shapes.  Online video classes are also available in my Shop ... where you can paint with me from the comfort of your home but still get the close-up visual aspect of my painting techniques. 

I hope you will enjoy browsing my website. If you have any questions about me or my artwork, just give me a shout!
