Since receiving a bachelor of fine arts degree in painting and drawing in 1974, Kellick has gone on to have a successful career as an award-winning artist, with her works presented in multiple group and one-woman shows and represented in private collections. In addition, her art has been exhibited in the U.S. and Canada.

While residing in Florida, Kellick’s diverse art career featured an artist-in-residency state arts grant to complete large-scale murals on public buildings. She also was graphic artist for St. Petersburg Junior College, where she was responsible for college design projects, print materials and collateral.

Named the 2013 Niagara Woman of Distinction, Kellick was selected to create the official logo and graphic images for the 2007 Lewiston Jazz Festival, and her design was selected in a region-wide competition as the official logo for Niagara River Greenway in 2006.

Active in the community, Kellick is a member of the Lewiston Council of the Arts Advisory Board of Directors, the Cultural Alliance of Niagara, the Lewiston Chamber Business Advisory Committee, and is involved in Buffalo-Niagara and cross-border tourism, and the region’s arts and cultural community.  A graduate of Leadership Niagara, she has also served on the Niagara Catholic High School Marketing and Alumni Committees, among others.

A proud Daemen alumna, in 2012 Kellick served on the Daemen Presidential Search Committee and was the 2012 Convocation speaker at the college.
