About Kelsey

Kelsey is a native to Southern California, where she lives close to the ocean with her husband, Drew, and their two young boys, Aidan and Declan. She began her art journey in college and then again as a young mother out of necessity in those early, disorienting days of becoming a parent.

Emilia’s Post, named for St. Emilia of Caesarea, mother of Saints, began as an effort to find beauty and healing through art, and growth in the wisdom and love of Christ through the words of the Saints, Scripture, and the world’s great authors.

Kelsey creates worlds for words to live in, sharing these warm, inviting, and beautiful worlds with you and your home. Her primary influences are Scripture, children’s literature, Orthodox hymns, art and architecture, and quotes by great authors.
