Kelly Carámbula is a San Francisco-based artist and designer. Her work explores elements of control, often incorporating surprises that encourage the viewer to look closer, longer, or from a different perspective. She is continually interested and inspired by the tactile relationships between color and form— using paper, clay, and wood as her primary mediums.
Prior to focusing on her art practice, Kelly designed and published Remedy Quarterly (2009-2015), an internationally distributed journal that collected and shared food-related memories and the recipes that inspired them. She earned her BFA in Graphic Design from Western Michigan University.
