Artist
Keely Liles

Hi my name is Keely Liles and I am a freelance multi-disciplinary artist with emphasis in media and film production. My artistic endeavors have long centered around the question “how does art change the world?” Throughout years of study and practice I’ve come to understand that art as a noun, the object itself does not change anything. It is in the making of art, it is the people involved, it is the process, the ideas, and the community that comes from creating that makes the change. It is the art transformed from an inanimate object into an inspirational force that propels people forward. It is the tools in the hands of passionate people. I have found that this force ignites both the makers and the viewers and so I am inspired to create work that acts as a catalyst for change. I am a photographer by nature and a filmmaker by practice. I love learning and practicing all types of art and my breadth of artistic practice extends to writing, printmaking, painting, installations and animation.
