KATE KELTON TALKS ABOUT ART AND SLEEP
Posted On Aug 07, 2017
For artist/actress Kate Kelton, sleep plays a major role in her creativity. “I actually set my alarm clock for 10pm at night to remind me to go to sleep,” she laughed. “I read it is the best for your hormones and regulating your system – it changed my life!”
NEW YOU caught up with the Canadian artist at the Art on Scene Gallery in Los Angeles yesterday. The gallery creates an environment that makes collecting art fun and educational while also helping artists to make life long relationships with their customers. The gallery staff was also responsible for attracting Kelton to the exhibit. “They got through to my manager,” she said. “It is a brilliant idea to marry the acting world with art world especially for me as I am an actor who paints.” Painting is Kelton’s first love since she was two years old. For this exhibition she created five works of art using her fellow Canadian friend and actress, Sandy Duarte as inspiration. “My friend Sandy and I got together for this photo shoot,” she explained. “I set my camera on an instant sports speed feature and we were just taking pictures and pictures of us making out and doing all sorts of things actresses do if left to their own devices on a balcony. It became a series of paintings and I just picked my favorite ones for this exhibition.”
Kelton exhibits her artwork internationally and made her big-screen debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in Oscar-nominated director Deepa Mehta’s, The Republic of Love (2000). She was also the world’s first non-blond “Tic Tac Girl”, in an enormously popular campaign that aired for nearly a decade.
