I am a traditional artist and digital artist. I sell my art and do work for others. I am currently planning to attend parkland and then move onto the Chicago Institute of Art.

Born into a small Midwestern existence, grew into a certain presumptive bravado and reluctant utopianism. Embracing oddities from everywhere, humbuggery and legerdemain, and an aesthetic of the operational. Learning that things do not have to add up in order to count.

Kelli Roos is a passionate artist who share this love as an illustrator, graphic designer, and as a teacher. For over 13 years, Kelli has helped her clients communicate their needs and stories through her design and illustration. She is the illustrator for the children books Ol' Pigtoes and the upcoming Goodnight Princess. She shares her love of storytelling through the Champaign Park District as an art teacher. She teaches classes on how to create and draw comics for a variety of age groups. She shows students how professional create their comics and shows students how to make their stories engaging to their audience.

Kelli Roos has admired art since the age of 3. She wasn't studying DaVinci, but Scooby Doo was just as enthralling at that age. Throughout the afternoon, Kelli would watch as many cartoons as she was allowed. This prompted Kelli's mom to write a note in a journal, “She is a cartoon nut.” As Kelli grew, she emulated the cartoons and comics around her, developing pencil control and learning more and more about storytelling. To continue her education, Kelli entered college and focused on graphic design and drawing and received her BFA in graphic design with an emphasis in figure drawing in May 2000.
