...One must awaken in the morning with the supreme pleasure to exist and to do so one must take in many pleasures so the continuity of all that lies in the ethereal state does so in hope of creating something that resists the temptation to be forgotten...  



She was Born in Indianapolis,Indiana. A very shy little girl she was, though in 1984 she stepped out of her shell ever so timidly to take part in her 1st sponsored show at a local theatre. The show was entitled " The Gifted Child " revealing the early development of the creative mind.... and this is where it all began...

  •  1984-1994: The following years were spent enveloping the innocent adventure of expression. Drawing,Painting,Sculpting,Designing & Creating Clothing,Writing Poetry,School Theatre & Ballet.
    Chosen along with 6 other students from the Indiana School District in 1988 to participate in a Cultural Art Exchange for The Indianapolis Museum of Art & then the following year for The Children's Museum of Art.
  •  1994-1995: Participates in group show represented by the Herron School of Fine Art wherein discovered by Ms. Bonnie Fiorucci who began selling the work immediately in New York, Chicago & California, Which would soon become her new home.
  •  1996: First inclusive show of many mediums " Amongst & in Between " ~ " An Elusive Soliloquoy " ~ The show consisted of paintings some transfered to gels and illuminated around the sculptures and clothing being transported by slowly moving effigies across the room as the spoken poetics of Kele's own verse is set to music created hours prior to the opening adding the utmost autonomy of expression to an experience felt by all of the senses, from the drops of rain that were momentarily dispursed to the aromas of gardenia, cut grass, the dampness & feel of the falling rains that invaded all senses as the last image appeared suspended in light.
  •  1996 - 1998: Exhibits work through various clubs and theatre's where her work is given the Diamonds of Hollywood being introduced to such clients as Dennis Hopper & Angelica Houston & Steve Martin. In early 1996 she opened a studio to bring awareness to " The Harmony among Cultures Around the World " She did research on world cultures, religions and spiritual awareness in the arts. After her first trip to Africa for three months to document the " Bushman Tribe " and many other exceptionally beautiful finds in the wild of the Congo. It was ever so fascinating for her especially in understanding how these groups came to be within the continuity and balance for survival.
  •  1998: Accepted induction into the " Poets Hall of Fame " awarded by President Bill Clinton for being the most awarded poet by the society since the age of six. 
  •  1998: Became a member of Mensa and donated a painting to the society to increase the awareness of the importance of mindful development.

    for the 'Opening Memorial' for all of those whom have passed due to AIDS. From this she created " The Unseen Before Then.. Will Now See.... The Day Without Art .. Without Anything Other than " and all the proceeds went to victims. This show goes on tour to 45 galleries.

  •  1999-2000: Moves studio to Los Angeles. Creates the show " The Ethereals " Opening Night at ' The Magic Castle ' where every facet if this spectacular maze of mystique is utilized to its fullest capacity. Gel images again rise and fall to sounds as eloquent as silence itself .. a passing thought, if not still.. it will pass you by without the possibility of remembering... Then there was the clothing also presented in small acts, in all there were 21 acts, short stories. The gel painting overlay the action and the whisper of all that surrounds and is felt in the movement of the music. . . seen in Seattle,L.A., Chicago & San Francisco.
  •  2000-2002: Accepts " Underground Artist of the Year Award ".
    Exhibits paintings and sculptures in steel and light. Donates 70% of proceeds to " Literacy in The Arts " in the U.S. and all the " Literacy & Art Organizations " around the world.

  •  2002- 2005: Exhibited a Solo Show at the " L.A. Louvre " this show had it ALL... . sculptures were the main focus. They were made from many hours of meditating these divine excretions of form that came in complete unconsciousness, the poetics and the music followed the form as some were made of thin steel and copper so thru the wind could flow without being muted for it was used in the kinetics of each piece creating the background chamber of the orchestra.
    The turnout for this show was a celebrity event with a silent auction as well and the passionate response was overwelming, she is now in the prestigious collections of Steve Martin, Robin Williams, Dennis Hopper, Jack Nicholson and Angelica Houston.

  • We remember always her thoughts for everyday... We must always awaken and "decide" to give happiness and joy to all in our path and to live by a most important sense of knowing that of which has a deep belief inside us that guides us to feel that we are all on a path to meet and teach something to all whom we meet along the way... because we are "Not" here for our selves, we are here for one another...Live selfless and all will be defined as such....

 The Journey Continues...............
