Welcome to a world of bold and gold. I am artist Kelly Aiken who loves to paint original works, gild gold leaf, and send fresh art to new homes. Inspired by my daughter, Copeley, my art is full of color, high energy, and movement. As the wife of a retired NFL player, I was constantly moving locations. Each move was a reminder of how important it is to make your living space always feel like home. Art provides comfort and life to your surroundings, and I strive to add a timeless, but bold vibe making spaces #abitmorebeautiful. My mission also involves mental health awareness, donating proceeds to
