Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Kelleher was fortunate enough to have had the inspiration of her creative family. Her mom was a painter and other family members were sculptors, painters and musicians. Although the interest was there, corporate America, followed by her own Specialty Advertising Company, lured her away from any artistic pursuits. In 2005, she began her studies in drawing and oil painting at the MFA in Boston, followed by extensive studies with notable artists such as realist painter Tom Ouellette, Sam Vokey, Don Demers, Joseph McGurl, David Curtis, Rosalie Nadeau, and Stuart Dunkel.
