Black and White Photography by Artist Kelly E. Marra - East on Elm - Sunrise over the McKinney Airport Runway


“I am an Artist.  I’ve been driven to create from a young age – it is deeply woven into my being.  Sharing the beauty of life, the land and our contribution to the pages of human history is important to me.  I like depicting a moment in time that future generations will look back on and get a sense of who we were and what we liked to do in this time period on earth.  Of course – I am only one small cog and believe strongly in supporting and nurturing other artists on their journey of telling the story from their unique perspective.  Like the “Rat Pack” of their day, the Impressionists understood the value of surrounding themselves with others with a similar mission.  This is an energizing time in my home-town of McKinney, Texas, where we are striving to emphasize the importance of the arts in our community, and I am thrilled to see it happening in other cities as well!”
