Kelly Porter (‘97, Printmaking)
Painter, Surface Designer, and Owner of Porter Teleo
When Alumna Kelly Porter started Porter Teleo 17 years ago with her business partner and interior designer Bridgett Cochran, she never imagined that her stunningly beautiful hand-painted wallcoverings and fabrics would adorn the homes of celebrities like Gwen Stefani, Cameron Diaz, Ryan Seacrest, and Reese Witherspoon (and some we can’t even mention because of NDAs).
In addition to running her Kansas City-based company, she maintains a studio practice and recently held a solo exhibition at Blue Gallery where she introduced 25 large-scale oil on canvas paintings and 20 monotypes born out of her fascination with organic forms. Learn more about Porter Teleo.
