About Kelsey

Art has always been an important part of my life. It brings me joy and I love sharing that. When I was young someone told me that I could have a career coloring pictures. I thought this was awesome and suddenly I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. 

I studied illustration at Brigham Young University. I graduated in the August of 2013 with my Bachelor of Fine Arts in illustration. I worked for a few companies (American Crafts & DCWV) before my husband & I decided to start our little family. I wanted to be able to stay at home with my baby girl & still create art. So Kelsey Carlson Art was born a week before Abigail was born in June of 2015. Kelsey Carlson Art has been a family effort. I create all of the artwork & my husband helps with the packaging, foiling, and small business tasks. He is the best & Kelsey Carlson Art would happen without him. 

When not designing or illustrating I can be found playing with my baby girl, reading, trying a new recipe, running, playing Frisbee, exploring new places, or on an adventure with my little family. I love my life.



I am currently available for freelance illustration and graphic design opportunities and would love to work with you!
