MEET THE ARTIST
Meet the Artist
Hello Love, I'm Keely, artist and owner of The Black Out. From the time I was little I've loved creating. From sewing purses out of old jeans, painting walls with my mom using sponges and grocery bags, or challenging myself with new DIY projects.
My inspiration comes from a culmination of things, nature, bold patterns, textures, wallpaper, people, even suggestions from my children. Each piece speaks to me differently and never turns out exactly as I envisioned and often times evolves into something completely different by the end. I've found that for myself often times the things that make me uncomfortable or out of place are the exact things I need to embrace in order to grow, and often times that's what you'll see in my art. I'm so glad you are here and honored that you have chosen to explore what we have to offer at The Black Out.
Wishing you love and the uncomfortable,
The Black Out Co. was born out of a culmination of passions. A passion to create, learn, and give. Our vision is simple, we create home decor and up-cycle previously loved furniture delivering something completely unique while making it affordable and giving back at the same time. All of our pieces are created using eco conscious materials. Each piece of furniture is inscribed and dedicated to a person of color who has made an impact in history or lost their life at the hands of another, whether it be police brutality, ignorance, or due simply to the color of their skin. We give back by donating 10% of all proceeds to black non-profits and raising awareness of the importance of ALL black lives.
