THE OIL PAINTER
Many know Kelly Lang as a singer/songwriter but, she also is an accomplished oil painter. Never having lessons, this talent comes to her as naturally as singing and writing. It all began when she received a painting kit as a gift and decided to "take a stab at it" as she would say.
Her passion started with her first painting of a coffee cup for her husband T.G. Sheppard. She chose this because Sheppard wrote the theme song for Folgers "the best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup". When she took the painting to get framed, the framer wanted one as well and she was hooked.
Her talent developed as she continued and soon grew from creating portraits of her family to being commissioned by celebrities to paint their pets. Lang has several pieces hanging in the homes of Barry Gibb, Olivia Newton-John, and has even painted Sadie for Oprah.
