Mae Eli Kellert is a photographer, sculptor, and writer with a deep interest in art history and the philosophy behind art making. Their work often touches upon themes of nature and the human role in the environment, gender and sexuality, and self-identity and acceptance. They received their BFA in photography from Stockton University with minors in Art History, Writing, and French, and studied Contemporary Art History and Painting En Plein Air abroad at IESA in Paris. They have worked for several years as a sports photographer while also holding various jobs in the New York and New Jersey art worlds. Eager to open conversations about contemporary art and its place in art history as well as to interact with the current arts community, Mae Eli hopes to bring the arts to the public in as mutually-supportive a way as possible. When they're not working or writing, they're off hiking a mountain somewhere, or singing to their countless houseplants.
