Kelly Mier has been studying art since the age of 5. From the ages of 8-12 he apprenticed under the prominent Southwest American Artist Elaine Sullivan, and continued to study all the way through college.
After being accepted to the Chicago and Cincinatti Institutes of Art, Kelly decided to change paths and study architecture. He graduated in 2008 with a Masters of Architecture from the University of New Mexico, and is now a practicing architect.
However, his passion for art has always been alive, and whatever outlets he couldn't find in architecture, he has always been able to find in painting.
Kelly now works in association with another artist, Joseph Scheinberg, and they actively try to get their point of view out and into the world of art. They have participated in Art shows together and will do so often in the future.
Mr. Mier and Mr. Scheinberg got together in 2012 to form Scheinberg-Mier Design.
Kelly's love of humanity and anthropomorphic form is always the theme of his works. He is always trying to explore the heroic in humanity as well as those characteristics which can cause the downfall of man.
