Kellie Kaori Vernon was born February 12, 1980 in New Orleans. She graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 1999 with a B.F.A. in architecture. Since graduating, she has worked as a freelance artist, muralist and painter and has participated in several local exhibitions, including two solo shows. Vernon creates a portrait of herself every three years. "I take a picture of myself and try to reflect on where I am at that time. The self-portraits are narrative, as they tell a story of me … Perceptions of myself change as time continues; this transformation is captured here in a series of images that will continue on until I can’t draw any more."rn“In this current body of work, these portrayals are part of a self realization that we are, in the end, and currently, the manifestation of what we’ve done, where we’ve been, and how we’ve lived. Each black-and-white image is an interview, a memory which gives some hint at the light and or dark murkiness that lurks behind each of the portraits.”rn—Kellie Kaori Vernon
