Kelsey is one of very few artists who are exploring how public art, interactive art and social media intersect. She believes that art should not be separated from the human experience. Instead the human experience should have a hand in creating the art itself.

Kelsey creates large scale, interactive street murals around the world. Kelsey has created work in Cape Town, Galway, Buenos Aires, Hong Kong, Manchester and New York City (among others). Each piece provides an opportunity for people to become a ‘living work of art.’ Participants are encouraged to post pictures with the work on social media under the hashtag #whatliftsyou with the intent of making social media a kinder place.

She designed her piece for Del Mar Plaza to represent the local lemon trees that grace the center and this part of California.
