I’m Back a Published Artist

I’m back a published artist!

You can find me in Persephone’s Daughter’s Fall 2015 inaugural edition literary magazine (HERE).

Persephone: once abducted by Hades, queen of the underworld, vegetation goddess, protector of  young girls.
Persephone’s Daughter’s is a lit magazine dedicated to empowering women who have experienced various forms of abuse and degradation.

They also have a (TUMBLR) and a (FACEBOOK) as well if you are interested.  The magazine is geared towards Women and has a variety of art, poetry, prose, interviews and reviews.  All of the women working for this magazine are really so kind and helpful if you just want some advice or someone to talk to.  With such great young and talented women involved in this project I see it only getting bigger and better! In saying that, I am honored that I get to say I was one of the originals!

I’ve gone through some unbelievable things since I have last blogged here and I am still figuring it all out and putting pieces together so, getting my work out there and published couldn’t have come at a better time for me. I am so thankful for the opportunity, the deadlines and the hard push it took to get to this point.  You can be sure to see more of my art being published hopefully soon!

Finally, I am happy to share that about seven or eight months ago I decided to start a YouTube channel showing sped up demos of my painting process start to finish. 
I am hoping to do a giveaway of a painting that has or will be featured in a video on my channel soon as well. So, everyone go check it out, subscribe, like and watch for me please! The link is (HERE) or you can click the red You Tube link above!

My Poetry

Grimm Persinette

Grimm Persinette

By Kelley Stephens



She is beautiful a recherché catastrophe.

Everyone would turn their heads and howl as she walked by.

She was like a rag doll screaming ‘love me love me’.

And they did,

Watch her as she limps back home

She will live in repetition to survive this way.

Feeling her stomach empty, the people took pieces of her when she wasn’t looking

She’s packing up, stiffening structures and she thinks this will get what’s inside, out.

Her mother is proud of her although she skips the gory bits.

She was reflected light in mirrors crying asking where he went.

This life wasn’t something she found solid enough to cling to.

She wanted to be chased; but good luck getting past all the junk.

Sleeping in the room she plays make-believe in, has become her world.

She knew she wasn’t very important even though they all coveted her gold.

The sex was easy, she was losing everything, they captured her unborn children.

She knew better, needed and wanted to be somewhere else, or someone…

Recklessly confused and falling.
