Art in the Home of Kelly Lynn Jones from Little Paper Planes

A: Art means to me everything.  It is my life, I could not exist without it.  I sleep, breathe, live art.

R: Reading … Books: I am reading Cleopatra by Stacy Schiff
Blogs:  I look at so many blogs for so many different reasons, though just to highlight a couple I find personally inspiring for my own art practice: i heart photograph; hunter gathererer; contemporary art daily; an ambitious project collapsing; bevel and boss; claire nereim; reference library; you have been here sometime; typographic art stuff and many many more.
Magazines:  Artforum, Cabinet, Real Simple, National Geographic, W, and more!  I love going to my local book store and looking through their magazine stand.  It is part of my every Saturday.

T: Trends I see in art or graphic design are… there are trends always happening, but I try not to get too caught up in them, though it is easy to subconsciously become influenced by what you see. 


A: Artists I admire are… there are too many artists to list, but I will make a short list:  The Shakers Gift Drawings, Gordon Matta Clark, Bas Jan Ader, Yoko Ono, Joseph Beuys, Robert Smithson, Andrea Zittel, Frances Stark, Letha Wilson, Rachel Whiteread, and so on.

N: Never will I… regret.

D: Dreams for my own work are… always unfolding.

P: Projects I'm currently working on are a (a newly designed and upgraded Little Paper Planes) a clothing project, a video project in collaboration with my boyfriend Collin McKelvey who does sound pieces, and a published book by Museums Press of my written thesis I completed in Graduate school last May.

R: Relaxing I do at / when / if, I think the right word here is "if", though I am hoping to do more of that one day, but  for now I am all about the hustle.

I: Interesting art-places online are… see above for blogs, and of course: Little Paper Planes


N: New in my home are … two antique star map celestial lithographs from the late 1800's.

T: Tomorrow I like to …. work on some art and go see my boyfriend's music show.

S: Studio, my studio is in transition.  I am currently in the process of moving my studio from San Francisco to Oakland. A few friends and I are looking for a storefront for an art project space, this is also where my studio and Little Paper Planes will be located as well.


Thank you Kelly! Kelly Lynn Jones is one of my 'Art-Hereos' not only do I love her own work very much I also love what she has done with her 'art-shop' Little Paper Planes. She has brought together many of my favorite painters, illustrators, mixed media artisit and made it easy for me to find something interesting for our own home. At the Little Paper Planes blog Kelly gives you a lot of background information about the artisits. It is absolutely great for me to see what kind of art she has displayed in her own home, hope you liked it too!

    I get it. I am on vacation, but still everyday I draw and look for inspiration in the everyday. Your blog is a daily stop!

    Great choice for an interview, I love getting to see a glimpse into Kelly’s home- since she’s surrounded by so much art, it’s cool to see what she personally selects for herself! & that painting by her grandma- too cool!

    i’m really loving these type of posts! it’s so neat to see into people’s homes…but with the focus on art – that’s so up my alley (i mean, there’s lots of “home tours” online but the focus is always on design which is cool but…not as great as this!)

    love those little images of the victorian style women!


    I love your Blog,very inspirational.i adore all your post,spectacular images as well.Thanks for sharing!
