"Bickman dares to mix -- color, theme, mythology -- and she does so with respect and humor at the same time. A difficult feat...Kelli Bickman, a serious artist to be sure, proved to my partner and to me that art produced from a sense of joy could lead to an artist's life -- you know, the kind we all dream of, where our art is our living and our living is our art. I think art such as Bickman's is actually the most "serious" of all in that it expresses something joyful and ecstatic about being human. I think, too, that art like this can only come from a certain kind of soul -- a happy, broad-minded, and delighted-with-life soul." from

Kelli Bickman is a multi-media artist. She grew up on a farm in Minnesota, studied art in Wisconsin and London and moved to the West Village of New York City in 1995. When she isn\'t traveling the world,
she resides between the West Village of NYC and Beacon, NY.
