Artist Website

Kelley Skillin makes fabric covered animal pillows, door stops and other accessories with top grade contemporary and vintage textiles. She does all of the work from pattern design to finishing touches herself.

Kelley enjoys mixing and matching a variety of prints, textures and shades of color in each adorable one of a kind design. She isn’t afraid to combine vintage and futuristic fabrics in the same piece. Her buttons come from all over the world and are made from a variety of materials, including coconut shells, abalone, metal and wood.

Her studio abides by zero waste principals relying on repurposing techniques from an earlier era.
