Kelly Panacci
Kelly Panacci Inc
Kelly is an artist and illustrator whose classic signature style is recognized for it’s beautiful imagery entwined with layers of color and texture. Kelly and her husband Mario have been a creative team since they met in highschool. Inspired by a shared love of art, they started many small crafty ventures while happily raising 3 kids. Their entrepreneurial spirit and a desire to stay at home with their children led them to start their own art licensing company in 2003. Mario left his tech consulting business and Kelly moved from her senior illustrator job in the city to work from their home studio outside Toronto, Canada. If you meet them you’ll quickly notice that Mario is the chatty business guy while Kelly is the reserved artsy one. Over the years, they have been fortunate to work with leading manufacturers in the creative industry and Kelly’s art can be found around the world featured on products in scrapbooking, paper crafts, rubber stamps, fabrics and home decor. To partner with Riley Blake Designs - an innovative fabric manufacturer - is truly an honor for Kelly and Mario. A dream that started as highschool sweethearts has grown to “Art designed to Inspire™”.
