Kelly Finlay Kahn is originally from Albertville, Alabama. Her enthusiasm for art came at a very young age. After college, a career in commercial interior design, Kelly stepped into the painting world full time in 1998 – 2011.

With Kelly’s own art business, Art Can Be Learned, she taught fine art to children and teenagers year round. She also worked with autistic children having the purpose of improving their motor skills and enriching their skills and lives. Kelly’s goal was to teach students at all levels to enjoy art while storing fond memories of the experience.
In 2011, Kelly stepped back into the field of commercial interiors. She continues to paint for pleasure and commissions. She paints in all mediums but particularly in oil and watercolor. Her subject matters have been mostly portraiture, figurative, and landscapes
