Kelli Riley, Principal Designer

Kelli Riley is a gifted graphic and web designer. She has over ten years experience in the design industry. As the Principal Designer for Studio Art 101, she wears many hats; she manages projects, formulates design concepts, and maintains great client relationships.

Kelli began her career in print design and kind of fell or rather was pushed into the web world. She loves the fact that technology is changing all the time and that you must keep up to stay fresh and relevant. This constant motion keeps her senses sparked and ready to take on more and more creative challenges! Her focus is on creating a personalized experience for each client to ensure that the best final product is produced in the end.

Her background is in the visual arts and she paints in her free time. She volunteers for art organizations as much as she can and loves visiting art museums for inspiration. She lives in Baltimore, Maryland with her awesome movie buff husband, beautiful baby girl and their small active dog named Niko.

Side Note: Kelli is also known as the event planner among her group of girlfriends.
